paralysis on right side of body, difficulty walking and talking, cure ?

My nice was sent for a CT scan as she has recently had paralysis take over the right side of her body. She is under 10 and now cant use her right hand or arm , drags her right leg and is having trouble talking because of the right side of her mouth. What do you think is the issue and how could this have come on in a matter of a week?

Thanks for using

From the clinical details provided it looks like she has a stroke on the left side of the brain causing weakness of the right hand and leg. Other causes like brain tumor, infection and demyelination can also cause similar problem. I feel MRI of the brain would be a better option than CT scan for better details.
