Pediatrician 's  Response
The term cerebral palsy indicates non progressive damage to the brain during delivery or early infancy. If two children in the same family have neurological problem it is better to rule out any other disease. The mainstay of treatment is physiotherapy. Medication and surgical procedures have to be decided after clinical evaluation.
