Thank you for your query.
I can understand your concern. Development delay and cerebral palsy
(CP) are clinical diagnosis and cannot be confirmed by MRI
. It is good that the hearing and vision are normal. As your son has been worked up and is undergoing physiotherapy
and speech therapy
, you are providing the appropriate management for him. Medicines have not been shown to improve the development delay and CP.
Regarding your doubt about CP and your wish to have another opinion I suggest you can consult at National Institute of Mental Health and Neuroscience (NIMHANS) in Bangalore. It is a premier institute and you shall get the best opinion.
I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction. Please feel free to revert back for any clarifications or if you would like to share any other fact regarding the case.
Wishing you and your son all the best.
