Re: Baby with Cerebral Palsy needs a toy!
Lauren.. what youre looking for is termed assistive technology (AT). If you dont already have an Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP) through your local Early Intervention office (public schools will have this information) check into it. Most of the time you can find a local advocate for special needs who can help you acquire these things. Under some circumstances, these assistive devices can be special made for the child.
Also, under the IFSP your child is likely eligible for Occupational Therapy (OT) to help with dexterity issues, muscle balance, and things of the like. Unfortunately many people have to hear of these things on their own and ask that they be implemented.
All of the related info can be found under IDEA or IDEIA (birth to three) Part C. This is a federal law that outlines special needs education available to your child (age birth to graduation --or age 21).
