Hi there, I'm new to the community and just learning about cerebral palsy.
My son has PVL and "gross motor delay with increased tone". The doctors here don't make a diagnosis before 18 months under any circumstance but he will most likely be diagnosed with CP at his next neurology visit.
He is 10 months old and cannot sit up alone (just falls to the side and his arms flex back) and he cannot roll from his back to his tummy. He can roll from his tummy to his back but it is very uncontrolled and only to the right. He sees a physiotherapist every 2 weeks and he is on a regimen of stretches 6 times daily.
Does anyone have any advice to help him learn to sit up/roll over/anything? His fine motor skills are fine but he really hasn't learned any gross motor skills at all so far
