Re: Does my son have CP/What type?
Firstly my background, my son, now 3 has Spastic Diaplegic CP. So I can understand where you are coming from. The times of unknowing are difficult.
There are 3 'types' of CP, Spastic, Ataxic and Athetoid. My son has the spastic variety, which means his muscles are tight, he cannot walk either. His middle is floppy and he cannot sit up without supports.
I don't know alot about Ataxic or Athetiod CP, but it sounds like your son does have muscle tone problems, he cannot hold himself up, which means he has some low muscle tone some of the time. If you look online at those three classifications of CP, you'll be able read the symptoms and see which you think your son fits into. Think about what he can do and how he does it and what he cannot do at all, this is what the doctors will do when they classify him
Remember when you look, no one fits perfectly, he may have a mix. Its a best fit thing.
