Expenses of Cerebral Palsy:

Raising and taking care of a child with cerebral palsy can be extremely expensive and emotionally and physically draining. Individuals with cerebral palsy require extraordinary medical care. The reason the word extraordinary is used is that, unlike people who do not have cerebral palsy, individuals with cerebral palsy need to go to many more doctors’ appointments and require much more treatment beyond just going to a primary care doctor once or twice a year for annual checkups. Click to read more
