I am new to this, though not new to mental and physical disabilities (having several myself along with other children with one or the other) I know very little about Cerebral Palsy, though knowing me, I will be at least a book and web read expert by the end of the day. I am an EMT and have finished paramedic school twice though I never got to finish my "ride time" (internships) needed to test for my certification. I am good at finding medical information FAST, but the actual day-to-day art of living with this will only come with information, help and support from others. If anyone has any advice, please feel free to comment. It would be both welcome and appreciated. My son has been "somewhat officially" diagnoses with CP today, though the neurologist had (unbeknownst to me) been using it as a working diagnosis for 4 years now. He said that he wanted to rule out everything else first since my son had several other dianoses that could be confused with CP. He is running another full round of tests, including a FULL chromosonal work up before he declares it an "official" diagnosis. He already "officially" has a venous angioma in his right parietal lobe (of the brain) bordering on the right temporal lobe, epilepsy, mental retardation, and Autism. We have sought every form of therapy and treatment available and he has responded well to most, though he does still fall behind in physical therapy (which, I suppose, would make sense.)
