Unhappy Anyone having hypotonic cerebral palsy?

My son was misdiagnosed with diplegic cerebral palsy .Recently he is diagnosed with hypotonic cerebral palsy .The therapists say that he has a global developmental delay but at least he is catching up slowly .They are not sure whether he will be able to do everything that we can at 5 years of age .Do you know if kids with hypotonic CP are ablle to do everything normally as they grow up ?Do they have problems later in life like tiredness ,pain etc ??

My son was diagnosed with hypotonic cerebral palsy 22 years ago. He has significant developmental delays (cognitively at about a 7 yr. old). He is the sweetest guy around. He walks and talks, but slower than the average person. His fine motor skills are not great (he writes like a kindergartner) and he can't tie or cut his meals. He is able to eat and drink just fine and can button and snap and zip. He reads great but is terrible at math. Over all he is living a very fulfilled life. He will always need guidence but is a joy to live with. I don't know if this helps at all, but hope you get the answers you need.
