Preschoolers diagnosed with CP
It may seem odd that it could take years for a child to be diagnosed with cerebral palsy, but according to the CDC each year at least 1,500 children in the U.S. are diagnosed for the first time when they reach preschool age.

A cerebral palsy diagnosis can be delayed for a number of reasons including milder symptoms or missed signs of developmental delay. Cerebral palsy affects the part of the brain that deals with muscles so, typically, symptoms are related to movement, including speech.

For more information on developmental milestones your child should reach by 4 and 5 years old as well as resources about special education, please visit Developmental Milestones Four to Five Years at http://www.cpfamilynetwork.org/cerebral-palsy-articles/cerebral-palsy-news-developmental-milestones-four-to-five-years.
