I am not a parent of any children, let alone a special needs child. But, I am an adult with cerebral palsy and I feel this is why I can write this post from my perspective.
Despite having two children with the same diagnosis, that diagnosis affects them both differently.
Medical staff can only make educated speculations as to how things will impact your child. The truth is, the only one who knows what your child is capable of, is your child themselves
Let your child try so they no within themselves if they are capable when they are younger they will resist but it will help them be more independent later in life if they have tried and still can’t they, of course, help them there will be frustrations for both you as the parent and your child
Use community resource to find support information and tools remember there have been before you that have raised special needs children and parents of kids with cerebral palsy who have come before you that may have tips and ideas for practical and fun in life they will help you.
in conclusion, remember that you aren’t alone in this nor is your child or family.
