    Hi and welcome to the community 

    If you want to say what the diagnosis was it could help others to share their experience with you.

    Welcome to the community @jojooneill :) 

    We're a friendly bunch, so you've come to the right place! Would you feel comfortable letting us know what your grandson has been diagnosed with? This may help you connect with people who've been through something similar.

    I remember the moment my son was diagnosed with CP, reality shifted. How old is your grandson?

    Hi @jojooneill. Welcome to Scope's forum. It is great to see you have joined us. How are you at the moment?

    Thanks for already finding the courage to reach out to us. I appreciate how much courage it can take to reach out, especially when you are new and finding things difficult.

    Hopefully, you will be able to meet others going through family members being diagnosed with cerebral palsy. I can see @Minniedin has already responded to you - thank you @Minniedin.

    Please don't hesitate to let us know if there's anything else we can do to support you. We are all here for you and listening to you.

    You don't have to face this, or anything else, alone if you don't want to. Take care for now and we will look forward to, hopefully, hearing from you again soon  :)
