: My baby was diagnosed wiyh CP today. He is 9 months old. He moves around on the floor, and can get from room to room. He doesn't sit but he is starting to get up on all four's. They said he will probably never walk, this after a 15 minute assesment. Can they be wrong?
: I don't know what to do but cry!!!
Our child was diagnosed with CP around 9 months and sounds to be doing about the same as your child was, the best thing to do (although hard to accept) is to get him all the help you can as fast as you can, with us it seemed that there was all this help out there, but, it was like everyone was waiting for someone to just make the diagnosis. Our child has made ammazing advances in a short time. If you don't like the help you get, don't hesitate to ask for others. good luck
