What’s Your Story?

At Cerebra we believe in listening to the families we support and working with them to develop and share information and knowledge.

We are building a resource of blogs or articles written by young people themselves to help us challenge negative perceptions and promote a wider understanding of different conditions.

We are looking for young people to write about their experience of growing up with and living with a disability (parents can help if needed). The article can be about anything they like as we want this to be a chance for young people to write about what is important to them as an individual. The stories will be then collected together to form an information pack, as well as being published as individual blogs in our newsletter and on our website.

Our first story was written by Mair Elliot, who was diagnosed with autism aged 15. You can read Mair’s story here.

If your child would like to write something for us we’d love to hear from you. Please contact Emma Thomas on emmat@cerebra.org.uk
