Cerebral Palsy TreatmentThere are many types of treatments available for cerebral palsy victims. The main goal is to help the child achieve his or her optimal level of functioning. If your child has cerebral palsy, you can expect to utilize the services of a physical therapist, occupational therapist and/or speech-language pathologist. The medical care required will depend on your child’s specific needs.
Your therapists will expect you to work on your child’s movement and speech skills at home. Often times, they will equip you with special exercises and handling techniques that you can use with your child on a daily basis, at home.
The Costs of Cerebral PalsyCosts associated with caring for a child who has cerebral palsy are often times greater than what your family can afford. That is why you should speak to an experienced Kentucky birth injury lawyer. A lawyer will evaluate your child’s case to determine what caused your the condition. If a doctor or hospital was to blame, you may be able to recover compensation for medical expenses and more.
