What Is Mild Cerebral Palsy?
The Effect of Mild Cerebral Palsy on Children
Toddlers and infants only exhibit signs of cerebral palsy in the most severe cases. Usually, cerebral palsy is difficult to diagnose, especially when children suffer from a mild condition. In these cases,
Some people who suffer from cerebral palsy have symptoms that are not obvious or easily diagnosed. Mild cerebral palsy is a form of the disorder that allows patients to lead more normal but still affected lives. Like other forms of cerebral palsy, mild cerebral palsy occurs as a result of brain damage. However, the severity of damage in mild cerebral palsy cases is minimal when compared to other types.
This results in slight impairments that can go undetected by peers and some medical professionals. These impairments often are related to specific physical movements, such as walking and writing. Unfortunately, some children suffering from mild cerebral palsy do not receive corrective treatment for their disorder. This may be due to a misdiagnosis or being unqualified for therapy through school.
As a result, many people who suffer from mild cerebral palsy experience strong feelings of frustration and the perception of being different from peers. The stress your child endures while suffering from mild cerebral palsy may be unavoidable, but it is possible to take steps to improve their future.
