I'm a 1:1 nurse for a child with spastic-paralysis cerebral

I'm a 1:1 nurse for a child with spastic-paralysis cerebral palsy. I've noticed that she has a tendency for her body temperature to cool rapidly. My thought is that as her body has a higher percentage of fat to muscle changes in room temperature will have a greater effect for her. Does this make sense?
