Parents of children with Cerebral Palsy
Are there any parents who have children with this condition?
I am doing research on it but I would like input from parents who have dealt with it first hand. MY son will be 6 yrs old tomorrow and we were told last week that he has cerebral palsy due to the stroke he suffered connected with a heart condition.
I would just like to know what to expect on a day to day basis and developmentally.My sons case seems to be mild but we were told that more than likely it will progress overtime.There are things that we have observed for several yrs that we connected with the stroke(not swallowing food,stumbleing and falling,inability to control bowel function,not complaining of pain when we felt he should have)just to mention the most noticeable ones.If you have any tips for a parent just learning about this please let me hear from you.Thanks so much.
