Living with Cerebral Palsy Emma is on a mission to help adults live a better life with Cerebral Palsy. She herself was born with CP and has an inspirational story to share. What is more remarkable is that she now provides support services for those who are living with CP in the community. For someone who has very limited exposure or knowledge on this topic, I have left fascinated. Guest Bio. Emma qualified as a Speech and Language Therapist at Birmingham University in 1998 and has worked predominantly with children, running services for both pre-school and school-age children across London. More recently she has worked at City University supporting student speech and language therapists and also practices as a life coach. Emma is married and a mum to 3 young and active children. Emma was born with Cerebral Palsy and has seen a significant decline in her mobility in recent years leading to several surgeries and having to give up work. It was her frustration at the lack of knowledge and understanding of Cerebral Palsy as a disability affecting adults that spurred her on to begin campaigning. In 2018 she founded the charity Adult Cerebral Palsy Hub to campaign for better support and services and give voice to the adult Cerebral Palsy community.
