my son got diagnosed with mild cp last year at the age of 9
hi my son kieran got diagnosed last year, was a very big shock for me, wasnt expecting that diagnoses at all, but thinking about it now it kinda adds up. he was born at 32 weeks, and seemed healthy doctors ticked all the right boxes til he was about 3 we started noticing he wasnt doing what his friends could do. now i have the struggle of getting him into a secondary school with a lift as he cant do stairs without support, and the school hes at now say the local authority will not grant him a statement because he's not academically poor enough, even tho hes not academically great! they say his mobility and visual problems arent enough to get him a statement, has anyone had a similar situation? very worried how hes going to cope in a school where he cant physically move from lesson to lesson, thanks for reading, lisa
