Preschool age children are so much fun, and their little minds are going full blast. When a child has cerebral palsy, the fun doesn't need to stop. In fact, they need the stimulation and experiences perhaps even a bit more than someone without cerebral palsy. Love, time and creativity always goes far with children.
Being a parent to a child with cerebral palsy can leave you wanting ideas to help your son or daughter. I compiled a list to help give you some ideas to use with your child as soon as possible. My main bit of advice is to use trial and error. Sometimes what doesn't work one day will work the next day, week or month. It can take awhile to get muscles and brain working together. Have patience, flexibility and commitment to make this process enjoyable for the both of you.
Any time that you can give to your child is so valuable. Activities that keep them moving, reading, and mind stimulating are brilliant to use. Giving them an abundance of love and room to grow are the main things preschoolers need no matter the ability.
