How a New York Cerebral Palsy Lawyer May Help Improve Your Child’s Prognosis

A diagnosis of cerebral palsy may be overwhelming, particularly when the condition is the result of a birth injury. However, it is important not only to focus on your child's diagnosis, but also on his or her prognosis. Together with a New York Cerebral Palsy attorney and a team of doctors you can understand what your child, and your family, is facing and you can learn how you can best help your child.

Cerebral Palsy Prognosis

The neurological condition, or brain damage, that resulted in your child's Cerebral Palsy will not worsen over time, but it will also not improve. The brain damage will remain unchanged. However, the symptoms associated with your child's Cerebral Palsy can become substantially better or worse depending on the medical care, rehabilitation therapies, and education your child receives.

Cerebral Palsy Treatment

Treatment for cerebral palsy depends on your child's specific symptoms, but may include:
  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Orthopedic surgery
  • Medications
  • Speech and Language therapy
  • Special education instruction and services
