Ok. But I have a question. What are the symptoms of Cerebral Palsy and what should I expect to see from my son?
Hi Mr. and Mrs. Schwartz, I heard that we are here to talk about your son Hudson. First let's start off by saying from a basic standpoint what Cerebral Palsy is. It is group of disorders caused by abnormal brain development which is the largest cause of disability in children. There are many kids with it. We will get through it.
Having Cerebral Palsy makes moving your body and walking very difficult. Other physical body symptoms include permanent shortening of muscles, overreactive responses, weakness in the muscles, paralysis in one side of the body, involuntary movements, coordination movements and more. There are also developmental disabilities such as difficulty learning, growth issues, and sometimes facing death. Speech disorders include difficulty speaking or stuttering involuntarily. Loss of hearing, constipation, seizers, urine leaking, paralysis, and deformity are some other common symptoms of Cerebral Palsy although we cannot predict what we will see in your son until he gets tested.
Alright. I would like to look into treatment, is there a cure?

Unfortunetly Mrs. Schwartz, there is not a cure for Cerebral Palsy. However, your family can look into physical, speech, recreational, and occupational therapy. We can also prescribe Hudson medications and see if he needs to get surgically operated. If you follow the best medical procedures, we can give Hudson the best life he could have and help him thrive.
