About the Author

Desiree Da Costa is an accomplished developmental service worker with a keen interest in pediatric healthcare and rehabilitation. All About Me and Cerebral Palsy is based on Da Costa's own lived experience with cerebral palsy while attending a specialized school for children with disabilities from junior kindergarten to Grade 1. With the help of her teacher, educational assistants, an occupational therapist, and a physiotherapist, Da Costa's Grade 1 classroom project involved each student creating their own version of an All About Me book to share with students at their new schools.

During her time at her new school, which she started in Grade 2, Da Costa was the only student with a physical disability. Her hope for All About Me and Cerebral Palsy is that other children with cerebral palsy can identify with it and use it as a teaching tool for those with and without cerebral palsy.

In Da Costa's free time she enjoys watching hockey, baking cookies, and spending time with her dog.
