Many children with hydrocephalus may have developmental delays, disorders of tone and movement, feeding and speech difficulties, perceptual motor disturbances and/or sensory disorders. These difficulties may necessitate parental/child involvement with pediatric Physical, occupational and/or Speech therapists at some point in the child's life.
To maximize every child's potential, specialized therapists will closely monitor the development progression of these children. When signs of difficulties are noticed, and appropriate and aggressive therapy program should be instituted.
Parental/family involvement will be an important part of the total therapy program. The integration of the therapy into the child's everyday life will be decisive and a lasting success.
