Prognosis

Some children do require intervention in the way of physical and occupational therapy. Your physician will let you know if this is needed.

As we often tell parents who want to know what the future holds for their child; your child can be anything his brain will allow him or her to be.

Some problems may develop for adults. The most common complaint we hear from adults relates to their short-term memory. We give them “tricks-of-the-trade,” but ultimately, just like the children, the adult must figure out a solution to his/her particular situation.

Research

Research is being conducted all over the country. You may not hear about the testing of new medications or new medical equipment until after they have passed all the testing requirements and have been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).

There are several organizations around the U.S., which primarily focus on fundraising so that grants may be given to researchers working on an idea or product relating to hydrocephalus or other related neurological conditions. There are other hydrocephalus organizations, like National Hydrocephalus Foundation (NHF), that not only focus on helping the family or individual, but also make donations to research.
