  • My first son had cereberal palsy - he died at 61/2. My 2nd and 3rd babies (twins) were born at 27 weeks gestation. I have one survivor and he has tested lower IQ but he is able to maintain at mainstream education and I can see him going on to college given the right assistance. My last child was born only a bit early but he was diagnosed bipolar by age 3. We have medicated him. However, when he was 7 he was hit by a truck while riding his bike and did suffer some brain damage.He is also mainstream education but needs support to keep him focused.
