As a parent, you have hopes and dreams of what the future will be like for your child. While there are many unknowns that can direct what the future holds for your baby, you want to do everything that you can to keep your child happy and safe.

If your child has cerebral palsy, you may be wondering what will happen when your child grows up. Will she be able to work? Will he be able to live independently?

The prognosis for cerebral palsy patients is highly individualized. The future will depend on the severity of your child's condition, the therapies and help that your child receives and numerous other factors. However, as a parent, you should be prepared for one of three possibilities:
  • Your child may live independently. People with mild cerebral palsy may go on to hold full time jobs and establish households apart from their parents.
  • Your child may require assistance. Your child may be able to work in closely supervised settings and to live with you or in a home with some professional assistance.
  • Your child may be completely dependent. If your child's condition is severe, it is possible that he or she will be completely dependent on you, or others, for his or her entire life.

No matter which path your child's future takes, it often takes significant financial resources to raise a child with cerebral palsy. Accordingly, it is important to contact a New York birth injury lawyer as soon as possible. A New York birth injury attorney will evaluate your case, advise you of your rights and fight for your just recovery. Please call 1-800-PAGAN-911 to learn more.
