Raising Special Needs Kids Raising Special Needs Kids

Hello!!!  My almost 4 year old was just diagnosed after a massive seizure this weekend.  I was just looking for Friends in the same situation.  She is very mild but now her quirks make more sense!  I have seen children with severe but never mild.  I am just wondering what to expect in the coming days, month, years!

Your welcome. Growing up i would have bad leg pains but not as much as i got older. I think it was cause i had to run in pe class.  When i go on long walks i will kind of hurt. But it not bad.

Have your symptoms gotten worse?  Are you in a lot of pain?  I just want to help her anyway I can.  Thanks so much!

My son has mild cp one side of his body is weaker, he has tone in his legs the one side has contortion so basically when he jumps on one foot his leg contracts outwards & down.  He has trouble keeping up with peers & is very clumbsy he trips alot but does not pay attention poor motor planing.  He has very bad fine motor skills but is getting better.  He also has autsm so things overlap.  He seeing nero every 6 months plus is seen & followed  by the nero motor clinic at our childrens hospital.  He has white matter brain damage. We do a ton of exercises gymnastics, wall climbing, bike riding, treadmill, tramp, bosa ball, yoga, soccer, baseball, basketball, swimming & lots of playgrounds ect. He gets thankfully lots of support at school & at home we have an afterschool team.
