Hello, all members
      I am new to this forum, I need some information to understand my son condition. My son is 5 years old now and still going around crawling. He can walk holding on to still objects. He cannot stand on his own, cannot balance his body. However he can stand on his knee and can balance. He can not stand on his own also wearing ankle brace. What is needed for him to stand on his own, please guide me any method exercise or surgery for him.

    Hi @diamondheart

    Cerebral palsy is a disorder of posture and/or movement that results from the immature brain either being damaged or failing to form correctly. It is a diverse condition that affects each individual in a way that is specific to them.
    Your son should be under the care of a paediatrician and should be given access to regular physiotherapy this will help with his mobility and coordination and help you access mobility equipment. We have lots of information about Cerebral Palsy
