At this time I do not have a professional accomplishment. I am a College student in a Single Step Program. I want to become an associate of the CP Group because I need help with my skills in the adult world. It is tough for people to understand if they aren't in my shoes. I need a lot of help with my social skills, making friends and maintaining that friendship. I know I will feel more comfortable within the CP Group.

Ellen Perry was born with Cerebral Palsy and has been a self-advocate for nearly 40 years. It started in public school. Ellen became a Brownie in second grade, where she first experienced self-expression. When she was 11, she tried to start a Brownie Troop at the Cerebral Palsy center where she went to school from sixth grade on. Through her efforts, which were denied, she learned that boys are treated better than girls (they had a Boy Scout troop) and that in general, people with disabilities are not treated with respect.

I don't have any credentials to speak of. I was never employed long enough to have a true professional career. However In my younger years I helped my best friend, who also has CP build a 69 Pontiac GTO into a 1/4 mile race car. He and I did everything to the car from wiring to engine repair to transmission and rear end swaps. I have many personal accomplishments as we all do but I find working on that old goat to be one of a select few that stand out.

In 1992 I earned my bachelor's degree in computer science from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. After a few years of trying to get a job and volunteering at a center for independent living doing some data entry, I decided to go to the University of Pittsburgh to get my master's degree in rehabilitation science. I received it in 1998. Soon afterwards, I landed a job for the State of Pennsylvania as a web designer. Because web designing is not really what I wanted to do, I continued looking for a job.

I was born with cerebral palsy. In spite of partial paralysis, two different sized feet, and the inability to walk prior to the age of four, I still was able to not only find employment, but retired at the age of forty after a highly successful twenty-year career in a major corporation: the United States Navy. I did it all while keeping my condition a complete secret out of a deep desire to be treated just like everyone else. One of eight children, I joined the Navy in January 1982 specializing in administration.
