Sensory Integration Disorders related to Cerebral Palsy
A child who develops cerebral palsy may suffer from a variety of serious disabilities that can affect that child’s sensory abilities. In particular, cerebral palsy can alter a child’s ability to make sense of the sensory information they receive from their eyes, ears, and other organs. Depending on how a child’s cerebral palsy affects them, they can suffer from varying types of sensory integration disorders.
If your family is providing special care for your child with cerebral palsy because of a doctor’s negligent mistakes before, during, or after birth, you may deserve financial compensation to help you cope with these expenses. For more information about how we can assist you in filing a claim for this compensation, contact a cerebral palsy lawyer of the Driscoll Firm, today at (800) 305-9800.
Concerns with Sensory Integration Problems
As a child develops, it may become increasingly apparent that they can hear or see things, but aren’t able to make any real understanding of what to do with the information their sensory organs have gathered. This may cause some of the following issues:
- Children may not be able to name things they see or hear
- Children may see or hear things, but will be unable to remember what they’ve experienced
- Sensory organs may be healthy and functioning, but the brain cannot make sense of information
Through rigorous therapy and treatment, a child may be able to recover some of their sensory integration skills. However, these disorders can be very difficult to overcome, especially if they’re particularly severe.
If a doctor or nurse’s negligence in the delivery room has led to your child developing cerebral palsy, we believe they should be responsible for the long-term disability costs associated with their disorder.
