• Cerebral Palsy linked to oxygen deprivation during child birth

    Posted on July 27th, 2009 admin No comments

    How much more does it cost in a lifetime to raise a child with cerebral palsy? Some say it takes almost a million dollars more than raising a typical child. You will need the specialized services of rehabilitation professionals, assistive devices, and need to make modifications to your home and vehicle. Your special needs child could need more doctors’ visits, psychological counseling, hospitalizations, medications and special education. It’s frightening how much damage can be caused by a negligent medical professional.
