Hello everyone my name is Carrie, and I am a mum of 2 boys and a girl, my eldest boy has asd and aspergers and dispraxia, and my youngest boy is on the spectrum just waiting for a diagnosis, my eldest is nearly 9 and my daughter is nearly 7 and my youngest is nearly 5 I just thought I would introduce myself
no neither did i til i had to look into it, its mainly to do with, which limbs are affected, if their muscles are too stiff or too loose and lack of co-ordination. about 90% of cp occurs in the womb, but ds was starved of oxygen at birth, which is what caused his. he also had seizures when he was born, which came back when he was 6 months old, but have fortunatly have gone away now I just pray everyday that they stay away. but bless him hes bright as a button and knows what he wants (and how to get it!)
Hi Carrie, welcome to the board, I'm quite a newbie myself. My ds who is 3 developed problems with his balance and co-ordination after a virus that attacked part of his brain last summer and he is trying to learn how to walk all over again but progress is much slower than it was the first time around and Drs are not sure how much of a recovery he will make. He has also stopped growing and is about to undergo blood tests to examine growth hormones and possible gluten intolerance. I don't expect you to remember any of that if you're anything like me! Anyway I'm glad you posted, it can feel a little daunting on such a well established board.
Hi meltedmarsbars, it seems a really good forum, im also on ASD Friendly forum too, its so nice to chat to other mum's about life as a special needs parent as my friends dont have special needs kids, so its nice to give advice and get advice and to know that your not on your own !
