My dad found out he had it last year. It is a very hard thing to deal with in the later stages. If your student is younger, Aikido could really help out. In our dojo, we have a young man with Cerebal Palsey. The training has given him a renewed sense of confidence and perpsective on life. I really do think if you have your mind working on something, like the principles of aikido, their body will adjust and respond better.
Sorry to hear about your dad Jody. Thanks to all that have posted thus far.
