I had a student who was diagnosed with mild CP when she was 10. It is definitelypossible for doctors to miss it. I would talk to the doctor and the PT about it.

My cousin had a mild case of cp but if you seen her you would never know she has it.
I also had a cousin that had severe cp and there was a huge difference in the 2 my cousin with the severe cp was in a wheel chair and could only say mom and dad and was totally dependent on others. May she rest in peace.
It happens when theres lack of blood flow or oxygen to the fetus.
Glad your dd is doing good!
