Daughter diagnosed with mild diplegia CP. Anyone else have a mildly affected child?

Hello

My almost 2 year old daughter (born 10 weeks early) was diagnosed with mild diplegia CP this week. I am devastated even though I knew it was coming.

Anyone else have a mildly affected child? Would love to talk to others in the same position.

Thanks

Katie

    Hi @KTaylor,

    Welcome to Scope's online community! It's great to have you here.

    Receiving a diagnosis can be a very difficult time and hard to come to terms with. We have a wonderful community of people who will be happy to offer advice and support.

    I've moved your post over to our Parents and Carers category where other members will be able to share their experiences with you.

    Hello @KTaylor
    Good to meet you. As my colleague Liam has said receiving a diagnosis is a very emotional time for you and your family. It is important that you give yourself time to adjust and know what you are feeling is a completely normal reaction to the news.
    I will include some links to some information that I feel will be of use.
