2 Year old boy with left hemiplegia how do you chart progress
I'm a Dad of two great and loving boys, a 5 and a 2 yr old. Our younger son was diagnosed with mild CP, left sided hemi in April this year. I have read up as much as I can take in stages as it's a lot to take in. We're doing swimming and soft play to promote his weaker side, have taken him to a paediatric physio and will continue to go to regular apt.
I've noticed his speech is delayed by about 6 months. We noticed too, with schools being off last week and our boy not being in nursery for his usual 2 1/2 days per week shift that he is less anxious and more settled. He has difficulty with visual awareness on his left side and the associated wobbly balance. I can appreciate that a 'one day at a time' approach is the route to take, difficult though it may seem for me. Also each child's circumstances are unique so maybe my I'm asking too much when I ask the following, but has anyone made up a set of time based goals to chart progress of their little ones to help keep us parents in check and motivated? I'm open to discussion/suggestions/help on this.
