CP cannot be diagnosed before and just after the birth.
It may cause difficulties both in the lives of the family and the infant. Lifelong physical and psychological difficulties are also included in the type of difficulties.
These children are in demand of special needs. Unfortunately, this situation creates a negative effect on parents’ emotions and thought and family members may have a complicated mood. They do not have the knowledge about how to live with their special-needed child and from whom they seek to help. Psychologically parents may feel guilt because of their child. So the family may have difficult times in their lives on.
Even in modern-days, CP cannot be diagnosed in mother’s womb. Symptoms can be diagnosed long after the birth. Consequently this late-diagnosis causes lack of confidence and anxiety on family members.
In these circumstances, family members should consult with an expert regularly to relax their minds. Since neither the family nor child is informed about this situation, both of them learn how to combat with their situation by experiencing and involving in consultation process. This expert consultation should not be limited, but lifelong.
