My DS was diagnosed with CP at around 13 months. I knew from about 4 months there was something wrong, mothers intuition?
Stiffness is the main factor with chrildren who have CP, also developmental delay, speech delayed etc. There are so many different types and severities of CP that it is hard to say. It can be very hard for the doctors to pick it up sometimes.
My son is now 6.5 years and he can still not walk or really talk, can not feed himself with a spoon, he is totally dependable on me. But he is progressing and the milestones he does make are that more amazing and special because they mean the world!
I hope you get some answers, or have had some answers. It is not easy being told that your child isn't what you expected, but it does get easier and you won't love them any less. The best of luck, Tracy xx
