hi welcome to healthcaremagic forum

Above symptoms suggestive that your child is suffering from the cerebral palsy... there is no permanent cure for the disease.. only supportive care and rehabilitation.. you will be thought how to bring up the child, and train daily activities... physiotherapy will help the child to walk..
