Hi, my son doesn't have cerebral palsy, he has a different neurological disorder (affecting his motor planning, including speech). Didn't want to read and run, am sure someone will get back to you

My son is 3.5 years old. He has delayed myelination which basically manifests as a dyspraxia, so he has difficulty with gross and fine motor planning. It also affects his speech. He has been in occupational and speech therapy since he was 21 months which has really, really helped. How about your son, is he also in therapy?

Hi

My daughter has hemiplegic cerebal palsy affecting her right side, she's 3 and a half. She can sit unaided and bum shuffles, but is unable to stand or walk and has very limited use of the right arm/hand.

She also has speech delay and uses Makaton sign language.

Shortly after birth, whilst the doctors were fighting to keep her alive (due to the condition she was born with) she suffered oxygen starvation to her brain, this has resulted in the entire left hemisphere of her brain dying. She received regular physio and is improving all the time.

Feel free to PM me.

NB she has also been tube fed since birth (currently trying to get her to eat orally), wears a spinal brace due to scoliosis (developed as a result of the cerebal palsy) and has a raise on her shoe as one leg is shorter than the other.
