Cerebral Palsy &
Neurodevelopmental
Disability (NDD)

At the neuropsychiatry center we have a unique approach to cerebral palsy, the quintessential neurodevelopmental disability.

Overview

Children and young adults with cerebral palsy have usually suffered early insults and/or injury to the brain. This affects them in myriad ways: intellect & cognition; motor function; sensory functions including vision, hearing & touch; speech & language functions; emotions & behavior.

Doctors classify CP according to the main type of movement disorder involved. Depending on which areas of the brain are affected.

Assessment

Signs

The signs of CP vary greatly because there are many different types and levels of disability. The main sign that a child might have CP is a delay reaching motor or movement milestones (such as rolling over, sitting, standing, or walking). Following are some other signs of possible CP. It is important to note that some children without CP also might have some of these signs.

Diagnosis

Diagnosis

While the diagnosis is clinical, brain imaging, electrophysiology, blood tests to rule out reversible causes or indeed contributing factors and a thorough pre-rehabilitation assessment including evaluation for co-morbidities (associated conditions) will be required in all instances. At Buddhi Clinic our assessment includes standard outcome indicators for activities of daily life, quality of life, neuro-disability and mental health.

Treatment

Buddhi Clinic addresses these children combining psychological treatments such as cognitive enhancement & behavioral management with motor-sensory treatments: Ayurveda, Acupressure, Reflexology, Yoga & Neurodevelopmental therapy. We work on integrated bodily function: posture, gait, balance & movement.
