This condition describes brain injury present at birth and which is manifested by some degree of weakness. This includes a wide variety of clinical problems, ranging from ‘walks abnormally’ to very severe and disabling handicaps. Some cases present accompanying seizures, learning disability and speech defects.
Diving fitness depends entirely on the extent of disability in the individual case. Candidates with mild problems may qualify; candidates with more severe disabilities may qualify through one of the scuba programmes for disabled people. The absence of seizures and the ability to master water skills are particularly important. For participation in scuba, case-by-case selection is needed.
I have Cerebral Palsy and I trained very hard and accomplished getting my Dive Master and 100 ton Captains License. It effects my whole left side. I trained for 2 years worked for a dive shop for 10 months and completed my dive masters inwanted my instructor but my working semantically we ended. Moral of the story if you want it bad enough figure out a way to do it and do it. Do it safely.
