Re: Need to learn about CP

When did she start to talk and did she receive speech therapy? My baby is very weak in his trunk. He is gaining more and more strength and control in his neck though. He sometimes will stiffin his whole body and at other times he slumps over. He is very often tight fisted, but sometimes his hands are open. He grabs for things but often he closes his fist before reaching the item. He is very smart and learns new things quickly, but he isn't able to talk at all. He does do a lot of cooing and babbling though.

Did Leacie have any trunk or fist issues and if so, at what age did she learn to sit up and use her hands to manipulate things?

Your experience is so valuable. Thank you for taking the time out to chat.
