Newly diagnosed 9 month old with CP. Im Worried about going back to work and how we will manage
Hi my son has recently been diagnosed with cerebral palsy (spastic quadraplegia). It's been a tough couple of weeks since the diagnosis. I have lots of thoughts buzzing around in my head but my main worry at the moment is how I'm going to manage going back to work full time at the end of October and juggling all his physio and all his appointments. He is going to a childminder 3 days a week and staying with family for 2 days. I'm also worried that because I have been at home with him constantly and constantly done his physio through play with him that once someone else starts to look after him they are not going to have the time to do it with him like I do and that he is going to fall behind. I've worked so hard with him in the last few months and I don't want that to slip because he has made some good progress. Does anyone have any experiences to share about going back to work and having a child with CP?
