After providing information on Hart’s behavior as a child, King said she “knew something was atypical” about her son from birth. An MRI confirmed he had periventricular leucomalacia. “I wanted to tell you all about this before I tell you this: yesterday Hart was diagnosed with hypotonic cerebral palsy,” she wrote. “I expected this diagnosis. Even though he’s the same kid, I expected him to hit me hard. But this is not the case. It didn’t strike me at all. In fact, I felt relieved. “Think of it this way: it was as mundane as living everyday life without putting the lid on the toothpaste and finally I have to put the lid on,” she explained. “That’s how simple and fair it was… This is the once terrible diagnosis I knew to come from that fateful day I Google searched for the right thing and it hit me like a truck: CP . I had known it was CP since Hart was several months old. I just knew. “

This is proof why early intervention is incredibly necessary for anyone who even suspects that something might be atypical, ”she said. “If I hadn’t advocated Hart, he would have wasted 16 months of therapy until he was diagnosed with PC. “ Looking to the future, King said the diagnosis of CP “really doesn’t mean anything different or changes anything,” adding that it “just allows him to continue receiving the therapy he is already receiving. “
