At Cincinnati Children’s, our cerebral palsy (CP) specialists surround patients and families with the care they need. Nowhere is that more evident than in the Rehabilitation Medicine Cerebral Palsy Clinic. Each appointment happens “arena style” − with all providers in the same room, sharing their expertise and observations, listening to one another and identifying areas of concern. This approach leads to more in-depth insights about what your child needs, in one convenient visit. You’ll leave with a comprehensive assessment and unified treatment plan, as well as the peace of mind that comes from knowing your child is receiving the best care possible.
These visits take place at the Cincinnati Children’s Burnet (main) Campus and our outpatient clinic in Mason, Ohio, and last for about an hour.
Early Evaluation and Diagnosis of CP
Children under the age of 2 who have not yet been diagnosed with CP may be seen at the Infant Motor Evaluation Clinic, located on our Burnet Campus. Our Infant Motor Evaluation Clinic is a one-stop visit for babies who have motor concerns. With a comprehensive assessment by a specialized physical therapist, neurologist and rehabilitation physician, each infant’s risk for cerebral palsy or other problems can be determined and a plan of action can be created.
