Treating cerebral palsy is considered a complex process. There is no standard or “cookie-cutter” method for treating cerebral palsy. Instead, most healthcare providers will address treatment based on the individual symptoms and overall health of your child. Most healthcare providers agree that the focus of cerebral palsy treatment plans is to maximize mobility, learning potential, independence, and overall quality of life. Many children with cerebral palsy live relatively normal lives enjoying school, family, and social activities.
