Infant Seizures Are a Primary Symptom of Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy refers to a group of disorders that can affect an individual’s coordination, muscle control, balance and cognitive skills. Early intervention can be the key to help individuals with cerebral palsy maximize their potential. Access to intensive therapy and medical treatment early in an individual’s diagnosis can increase their ability to be independent in some or all daily activities. However, most of the time this access means you must have some financial backing and in most cases due to medical neglect, you entitled to most, if not all of that financial backing to ensure your child has a normal childhood.
