You Need more Care: Evidence of ischemic stroke will not appear on CT scan for up to a week but by the symptoms alone we can pinpoint the areas of the brain involved. Other studies such as CT angio using dye to light up the arteries, or MRI can give more information early on. At this point you need rehabilitation and a consult with a neurologist. If you are not still in the hospital then see a doctor for advice now

How soon after my child is born will I know if she has cerebral palsy?

2 years: Cerebral palsy (CP) of all types involves problems with motor control. Because of this, children with CP do not walk on time. Some do not walk at all. So, if your child is not walking by 18 months of age, an evaluation should be launched looking for the cause. CP is one of several diagnoses that should be considered.
