My daughter has CP and is almost 2-1/2 years old. She had a Grade III brain bleed and seizures at one day old due to hypoxia.
She can sit by herself for very short periods and can belly crawl by pulling herself with her arms. She cannot crawl, walk, or talk. She wears AFOs and is learning to walk with a walker. She also has a stander, a positioning chair, a Convaid stroller, and a bath chair, as far as equipment goes.
She has cranio-sacral work, PT, and OT as well as a teacher once a week each. She sees a ST every other week, but we are hoping to increase that soon. Cognitively, she is very, very smart. She understands everything we say, but can't talk yet because of her muscle tone. The ST says she will talk, it's just a matter of time and therapy.
We also give her two supplements, phosphatidylcholine (http://cptreatments.blogspot.com/200...-phoschol.html
) and fish oil. She also sees a homeopath and has a constitutional remedy that she takes.
She sleeps horribly, so I am going to try a weighted blanket and I just ordered this CD: http://www.hemi-sync.com/shopexd.asp?id=375
