In brief: No one knows

There are many treatments available, but what is best depends on the age, the severity of the cp, the cause of it, the impairments present.

In brief: Supportive care

CP is a simple label for a complex collection of issues.
The disorder of movement & posture is oft helped by physical & occupational therapy. Yet the child may also have vision, learning, communication, behavior & other pbs.A learned primary physician or CP clinic can coordinate the many added services needed for improved outcome.
