Adults with CP are experiencing physiological changes earlier than adults without CP. This study examines how these changes impact participation in occupation. Findings indicate that adults with CP experienced significant changes in routine, social networks, and identity and received little support for managing these changes. These findings are significant for OTs, who can support these adults and promote continued participation in occupation.
