Lisa Diller’s 13-year-old son Alexander is an active middle school student who also enjoys participating in many school, church, recreational, and family activities in our community, and is not defined by his spastic diplegia. Many individuals have and continue to support Alexander’s journey in shaping the confident, caring, friendly, and articulate young man he is becoming.

Additionally, Lisa, with her support network, have advocated and provided treatment interventions to best support Alexander as he matures. For over 30 years Lisa has worked as a physical therapist with a specialty area in neuro-rehabilitation of adults in many practice settings. She currently enjoys teaching in the physical therapy program at the University of Washington working clinically, volunteering and spending time with her family. By participation in CPRN, Lisa looks forward to supporting the investigation of optimal treatment interventions for children with cerebral palsy across their lifespan in helping them to achieve their personal goals.
