: I have a younger brother with severe CP (quadrapeligia and spasticity). . . .What is the life expectancy. . . . :
Your brother's life does not need to be at risk. PLEASE contact "The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential," in Philadelphia, PA., USA. They teach parents and families how to help their brain-injured child; and that is what Cerebral Palsy is----a brain-injury.
To receive info: (215) 233-2050
Institutes website: www.iahp.org
Tell your parents (and you do it too) to read the book, "What To Do About Your Brain-Injured Child," by Glenn Doman. The Institutes is one of the miracles of the 20th and 21st centuries. They have the answers you're looking for, and don't let anyone else tell you any different!
