- How does the physical disability affect overall brain or motor development?
- How does the physical disability affect the family?
- How old was the person when the physical disability was diagnosed? Explain what differences might have occurred in the person's development if the disability would have been found earlier.
- Is the cause known for the disability? If it is, what is it? If it is, what treatment or interventions, if any, might have prevented the disability?
Your initial response should be between 200-250 words.
