My son was diagnosed with mild CP as a child. He is now 21 and either early intervention worked really good, it was very mild, or the big famous children's hospital that treated him for years misdiagnosed him. They said he would never walk or read. He walks fine, doesn't run well. He is a college student.
He was born at 36 weeks. He had OT, PT, and speech therapy when he was 12 mo - 3. Speech therapy until around 11. We homeschooled.
