Call and request Kit No. 230 – The Cerebral Palsy Diagnosis Checklist
With Cerebral Palsy, every child’s condition is unique. Some may have a mild form, others severe. The impairment may involve one limb, two, three or all four. The child may have paresis or paralysis. The cause of impairment is due to one of four classifications of brain damage, which should be accurately relayed to parents.
Obtaining a Cerebral Palsy diagnosis is often a lengthy process. Usually, a child’s development is observed over time. Tests may be ordered and various medical specialists consulted. A Cerebral Palsy diagnosis can be overwhelming as a parent begins to realize his or her child has a physical impairment that cannot be cured, but can be managed. Often, parents retain only a portion of information initially presented by doctors and other medical practitioners. Questions arise later
The Cerebral Palsy Diagnosis Checklist is designed to provide a parent with a better understanding and an easy-to-use checklist to document a child’s condition as provided by health care providers. Over the course of the child’s lifetime, it is likely parents will be required to supply this information to many individuals caring for their child - the schools, government agencies, caretakers, and health care providers. The information can be easily stored in the child’s home medical records. Consult with a physician to check off all conditions that apply.
