In Reply to: question about CP posted by Nancy on February 18, 2000 at 22:56:41:
: I have a 28 year old brother who has had several problems all his life.... Does this sound like CP, or am I really off base with my thoughts? I really want my brother to get the help he needs. Thanks, Nancy:
Though no one could make a correct diagnoses of your brother without being a physician and perfoming an examination or tests, it DOES sound like your brother has a brain-injury. Cerebral Palsy (or other brain-injuries) are not readily diagnosed in early infancy, and if it the injury is mild, a child's symptoms can be missed by a family physician as being eccentric.
Call "The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential," in Philadelphia, PA, USA. (215) 233-2050 and ask your questions there. The Institutes knows more about helping brain-injured children and adults than anyone else in the world. You can research their website for additional information: (www.iaph.org)
