|Mild and moderate?|
I have a 31/2 yr old with what has been called "mild" CP since he was 1 yr old. I have yet to determine what constitutes a dignosis of mild, mod., or severe CP. My therapists can not even give me a good answer. I did find an article one time that put CP into 5 categories of severity and it was based on what the child had accomplished physically by what age.
The only thing that my Ped. Neuro has told us is that mild usually means they will walk unassisted at some point,because they have less spasticity. Moderate means that they might walk unassisted but will probably need an assistive device. It is all based upon the severity of their spasticity.
I think it is just words they use to make you feel better with little real meaning.|
