: 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!!!
I would advise a trip to a neurology specialist. My 11 year old went to one at age 1. They did extensive testing,CAT scan,eeg, blood tests and got our diagnosis. 15 minutes is not hardly enough to diagnose CP. Your son is doing well.
