Diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy
Diagnosing cerebral palsy (CP) early is important to the health of the child and the family. To diagnose CP usually involves three steps:
- Developmental Monitoring
- Developmental ScreeningDevelopmental and Medical Evaluations
CP generally is diagnosed during the first or second year after birth. But if a child’s symptoms are mild, it is sometimes difficult to make a diagnosis until the child is a few years older.
