This is a great biopic about Cerebral Palsy. Daniel Day-Lewis won an Oscar for his portrayal of Irish writer Christy Brown, who was born with cerebral palsy. Without having any intention of bringing up domestic experience, I believe Daniel Day Lewis played marvelously. I’m convinced that he really tried hard to study everything about CP (Cerebral Palsy, not Cut/Paste) since he had to do most of anything using only his left foot. I read once that Lewis remained in his wheelchair between takes in order to absorb the character he portrays.
Cerebral palsy can’t be cured, but treatment will often improve a child’s capabilities. Many children go on to enjoy near-normal adult lives if their disabilities are properly managed. In general, the earlier treatment begins the better chance children have of overcoming developmental disabilities or learning new ways to accomplish the tasks that challenge them. Treatments may include physical and occupational therapy, speech therapy, drugs to control seizures, relax muscle spasms, and alleviate pain; surgery to correct anatomical abnormalities or release tight muscles; braces and other orthotic devices; wheelchairs and rolling walkers. he best cure for cerebral palsy is the strong, solid communication within family members as well as the wisdom and patience to deal with the ‘special needs’ and the limitations of those who suffer from it.
Since understanding and patience are the keys to successful parenting, especially those whose children suffer from Cerebral Palsy, these are exactly what we are practicing at home, to understand and to be patient. Communication can be troublesome sometimes, especially when he’s not well and he fails to communicate his feeling.
