Hi, my grandson is 61/2 and just now got dx with CP. We went to a Neurologist for toe walking and ADD and he knew right away what he had. My grandson had several problems when he was first born and at 3 months the nurse at the WIC office told me that he needed to be evaluated. He needed PT<OT<DT and speech and language. He had the cord wrapped around x 2 and was a vacuum extraction delivery. THe Gyne wouldn't give my daughter a C Section because she was a diabetic and he knew after 2 hours he could get the baby out. His apgars were decent and he went to the ICU and was home 4 days later. I am very upset that after the kids turn 3 they get booted from all there services and go into the school system. He had all of the signs and symptoms of CP but someone dropped the ball and didn't get give him the dx. I needed to vent and I hope someone reads this post. MOnicaView Thread
