Any moms of spastic diplegia (cp)?
My little 9-month-old dd shows a lot of signs of spastic diplegia. We have an appointment with early intervention coming up. I'm so, so, so worried. I know I shouldn't get so worked up unless/until there is an actual diagnosis but I have the habit of grossly over-informing myself to the point of paranoia. Over the past 3 months or so I've really tried to find other explanations for some of her "strange" movements and behaviors, and especially for her delayed gross motor skills, but I just keep coming back to this. We haven't seen the ped since 6 months of age but he was always very cursory in his exams and brushed my concerns off. Are there any moms out there with diplegic children? When were they diagnosed, what were the early signs, and how are they doing now?
