Writer Iain MacLeod talks about his experiences of growing up with cerebral palsy in the Western Isles.
Born in Stornoway, Lewis, Iain MacLeod now lives in the North East of Scotland. He has spent his life challenging expectations, studying, driving and living life in every way he can, including studying through the Open University.
Cherish each day and live it to the fullest extent possible. Every moment is precious, and not to be wasted. Life is for living, not waiting to live.
Iain tells the story of how he pursued his own learning and education, at a time when schools were very different than today. He also shares his advice for people with cerebral palsy and their parents.
I hope to inspire my readers to rise above the perceived limitations of disability and live life their way with grace, guts, and gusto!
