Hi ladies! Hoping maybe you can give me some input, although I think I already know the answer to my question!

My son is 6 months old, almost 7. He was recently diagnosed with Stroke in Utero and Cerebral Palsy. His CP is very mild but they did say he may have learning disabilities, speech impediments, hearing and/or vision loss and that sort of thing. I'm wondering if there's any way to tell at this age or if I'm just going to have to drive myself crazy wondering! Okay, I'm not really going to drive myself crazy - what will be will be, and we already have a lot to be thankful for, but I'm wondering if you might have any suggestions for DH and I to look for as he matures.

Not really but I knew my son had LD at 6 weeks of age. I just knew, the DR's did not believe me and looking back I can see why but I just knew it.

Just keep an eye on his milestones, but do not worry too much because as you know they all develop at their own pace.

I think kids with special needs or developmental delays often go on to have a learning disability but not always. I think it is great that you are trying to look into things now and be prepared.
