What is Spastic Diplegic Cerebral Palsy?
Types of Cerebral Palsy
Spastic diplegia is the most common form of cerebral palsy, which is distinguished by the areas of the body affected, specifically the legs and lower extremities. People with spastic diplegia may have difficulty walking and experience tightness in the legs, hips, and pelvis. Their legs may have a tendency to “scissor” or cross each other.
Concerns of Parents of Children with Spastic Diplegic Cerebral Palsy
Parents of children with spastic diplegic cerebral palsy may want to raise their loved ones in a way that prepares them to live a full and independent life. The physical and rehabilitative therapy undertaken in childhood can greatly impact the opportunities available to children once they reach adulthood. Parents may want to seek all available options for their child and choose the best educational and therapeutic opportunities for them.
At Renaud Law Group, we have learned from families of children with cerebral palsy about the individual nature of one’s experience with the condition. Parents who choose to engage in positive development for their children are often rewarded with the positive effects it has on those they love the most. Our lawyers share this desire to create the best life possible for CP families and have chosen to focus our practice on helping them access the support they need.
