Hi. Does anyone have any experience with cerebral palsy? Ill give a bit of insight on our situation. Niko was born healthy full term with no complications. From birth he has had a right side preference with his head. At his 6 week check up he got referred to physio for torticollis and plagiocephaly from the torticollis. At the physio appointment the therapist also noticed that he has very stiff arms and clenches his fists tightly most of the time. As hes got older we have noticed that his arms are mostly stiff and although he does reach out for toys, he has a right side preference with his hands too and still resists movement when his arms are manually stretched by us. His trunk and head control is good, but he doesnt straighten his legs fully and when jumping (jumperoo etc) will only do so with his right leg. Hes also developed a wiggle sort of movement he does with his back that his physiotherapist thinks could be an involuntary muscle spasm. He cannot roll yet and when he is placed on his tummy can lift his head but makes no effort to push himself up or support himself with his arms nor move them from a tight tucked position. Based on all of this, she is seeing us weekly, has referred us to an occupational therapist and also to a Pediatrician for him to be evaluated further. She has loosely mentioned cerebral palsy on a few occasions so now Ive been googling like a mad lady. Its been just two weeks since she said she would refer us. Im just wondering now how long we will have to wait. What kind of things are likely to happen in the process to possible diagnosis? And if he does have CP, what am I to expect? I dont know much about it at all and although we dont have a definite answer yet it looks likely and I already feel a little overwhelmed. Any advice at all would be greatly appreciated!
