Cerebral Palsy Symptoms
Cerebral palsy is generally understood as a condition that primarily affects motor function. It is for this reason that problems with movement are among the first signs of cerebral palsy that parents recognize in their children. These can include difficulties crawling, difficulties latching on during feeding, and the presence of seizures and spastic movement.
At Renaud Law Group, our work with families is focused on assessing the individual needs of not only each child with cerebral palsy, but also that child’s family and hands-on caregivers. Families affected by cerebral palsy are often under great strain, not simply from the challenges of raising a child with physical and perhaps cognitive differences, but also because they have to look after their own financial and emotional well-being.
In particular, caring for the needs of other siblings, and maintaining employment, all the while caring for a child with cerebral palsy, can simply be too much. We care deeply about our clients. If this is the kind of representation you need, contact us today and schedule a free consultation.
Steps to Minimize the Effects of Mobility Difficulty
People who live with cerebral palsy usually engage in long-term physical therapy to counter the effects of increased muscle tone, a contributing factor to spastic CP, the condition’s most common form. The range of treatment options available depends on many things, including the nature of your child’s diagnosis, the severity of his or her mobility restrictions, and the kinds of involuntary movement that characterize his or her condition.
To learn more about how our work can help you, we invite you to get in touch. We are supportive of the time and engagement CP families provide to their children, and we want to use our training and experience to help them get the support they need.
