cerebral palsy is a different disease and what the person is suffering is different. it is stroke.  and in stroke the nervous tissue die and the function done by the nervous tissue is lost, unfortunately nervous tissue once dead cannot be regenerated or with treatment it cannot be regrown. the option left with you is to wait for time when the neighbout living tissue will take up some of the task of the dead nervous cells. for that it takes time usually it ranges from 6 to 10 months

the treatment option now is to get the physiotheraphy done to keep the muscles intact and to prevent it from getting stiff so that when the surrounding nerve tissue starts functioning the muscles will act. so its rehabilation physiotheraphy which you have to follow now
