* Beware of banking complications. If moving from the US to a less developed country, you may find it surprisingly hard to open a simple bank account. Anti-money-laundering regulations and additional hassles these banks experience dealing with the US can result in reams of paperwork and the need for references that may be hard to get once you are overseas. Make sure you have adequate cash to get by for a couple of months since it will be hard to get money until you have a local account.

Ways to evaluate a child for cerebral palsy?
+
A treatment is a summary of a screenplay, TV show, novel or other story, sometimes in the form of an outline. It can be anything from one to ten pages or even longer in length. Treatments can be used as a tool of development for the writer's or used as a marketing tool.
 
+
[[Category:Plays and Screenwriting]]
Cerebral palsy can be referred as a neurological indication, associated with loss of body movements and lack of muscle coordination. The disease can affect children at their infancy or early childhood due to variety of reasons, such as oxygen deprivation at birth, high blood pressure of a mother during pregnancy, faulty labor, etc. It has been evident so far that children with severe form of cerebral palsy are born with the disease and symptoms are evident then and there; however for kids with milder form of the disability, it is quite possible that symptoms may not be exhibited for months. Thus, it is very crucial as parents to understand that their child is missing any one of the developmental milestone; and if it is so, they should immediately inform their concerns to pediatrics.
+
[[Category:Writing]]
Experts as well agree that early detection of progressive diseases, like cerebral palsy can help them in early diagnosis; engaging a child in early detection programmes for better outcome. Although, confirming cerebral palsy can involve many steps; monitoring the key milestones should be at the forefront of priorities, such as:
+
== Steps ==
• Abnormal Muscular tone: - Normal muscular tone, allows a child's limb to bend and contract without difficulty; supporting it to sit, stand and maintain posture without assistance. Whereas a child with CP may demonstrate increased and/or decreased muscle tones, abnormally bad movements, improper motion due to fused joints.
+
#Know the length. Treatments can be as long as 30-40 pages, but 1-10 pages is probably most common. There is no correct "length" for a treatment the way there is for screenplays because treatments are for a certain audience. Generally as a rule of thumb you want one page for every 2 minutes.[[Image:Write a Script Treatment Step 1.jpg|center]]
• Movement, coordination and control: - A child with CP may exhibit hypertonic, fluctuating, scissoring of the legs, poor balance and lack of coordination, disturbances in gait as well posture, etc. Thus, rolling, sitting, crawling, standing, etc. to assess significant milestones.
+
#Create the log line. Most screenwriters begin with a one-to-two sentences description of their story. Ideally it includes the main character, the main antagonist, the nature of their conflict, genre elements (if it's a comedy, it should be humorous; if it's a thriller, it should thrill; if horror, it should horrify, etc.), and hints of the plot through, without revealing the end.[[Image:Write a Script Treatment Step 2.jpg|center]]
• Fine motor functions: - Fine motor functions comprises execution of precise movements such as grasping small objects, gentle settlement of objects, turning pages of the book, etc.
+
#*Usually screenwriters flesh out this log line further into a paragraph or more. At this point they are leaving behind the straitjacket of the log line and entering the more free-wheeling realm of the treatment.
• Oral motor functions: - If a child is having difficulty in using lips, tongue and jaw indicating a cause of concern, such as speaking, swallowing, feeding, chewing, drooling, etc.
+
#*You can follow the format, [Who, with an adjective] [faces what conflict] [learns/does what] [to pursue/achieve goal] [but the conflict is intensified] [the character passes the test/suggest thematic resolution]
• Balance: - The impaired gross motor function can have severe impact on child's ability to sit and maintain a balance, indicating it to be a cause of concern. Thus, if a child is using both hands for support, while sitting or needing assistance for performing task that requires balance and walking with abnormal posture; it should be immediately noted as alarming indication.
+
#Be aware that there are two ways to proceed from here:[[Image:Write a Script Treatment Step 3.jpg|center]]
• Reflexes: - Certain abnormal reflexes can be noted as warning signs such as excessive reflex responses, lack of protective reflexes, abnormal posture reflexes, etc.  
+
#* Some writers expand the story like an outline, letting each bullet point represent a story beat or a scene, so that the final product approximates a rough scene outline of the entire story.  Some may keep gradually fleshing out these bullet points, the way a painter colors in trace lines, until they've filled the whole thing out into a full rough draft.
 
+
#* Other writers prefer a more categorical approach, where they explore different aspects separately, not necessarily in chronological order.  For example, they may have a list of major characters whom they describe with a paragraph or two. They may have entire back histories of the main characters that run a page or two long. They may describe key locations with a paragraph each.  They may also describe the plot but have it deconstructed, perhaps with the main plot in one group of paragraphs and various subplots described separately, not interwoven the way they would be in the script.
Some of the associative conditions can as well be visibly expressed at birth such as sensory impairments, seizures, learning disabilities, etc. This should as well be noted that as there is no diagnostic test available confirming cerebral palsy, ruling out the possibilities is the only way to confirm.  
+
#Don't be hung up on rules. Screenwriting is a fairly rigid craft with countless rules. Treatments are one of the few areas with no rules. It's just a summary of the plot, perhaps with a little character study, usually 1-10 pages long.[[Image:Write a Script Treatment Step 4.jpg|center]]
Other than this some of the combinational tests can be done to support the diagnosis early, such as:
+
#Understand that the form should suit the reason for which you are creating the treatment.  if it's a development tool for your own purposes, then follow your own instincts. If it's for a producer's benefit, ask what sort of format he or she prefers. Or again, follow your instinct. You can always think of it as a written pitch you're telling someone as simply as possible, while making sure to convey the elements that make it stand out.[[Image:Write a Script Treatment Step 5.jpg|center]]

Take Care of an Infant With Cerebral Palsy

Ways to evaluate a child for cerebral palsy?
+
As a new parent, you will take care of an infant with cerebral palsy the same way any parent takes care of a baby. There is no definite way to determine whether a newborn has cerebral palsy (CP). CP is a devastating neurological disorder, appearing early in life. It permanently affects the individual's ability to coordinate movement. The problem exists before birth, and CP is not a result of problems during birth. CP can occur in infants because of birth complications, genetic abnormalities, rubella during pregnancy, head injury or brain infections, including encephalitis or bacterial meningitis.
  
Cerebral palsy can be referred as a neurological indication, associated with loss of body movements and lack of muscle coordination. The disease can affect children at their infancy or early childhood due to variety of reasons, such as oxygen deprivation at birth, high blood pressure of a mother during pregnancy, faulty labor, etc. It has been evident so far that children with severe form of cerebral palsy are born with the disease and symptoms are evident then and there; however for kids with milder form of the disability, it is quite possible that symptoms may not be exhibited for months.

Thus, if a child is using both hands for support, while sitting or needing assistance for performing task that requires balance and walking with abnormal posture; it should be immediately noted as alarming indication.
 
• Reflexes: - Certain abnormal reflexes can be noted as warning signs such as excessive reflex responses, lack of protective reflexes, abnormal posture reflexes, etc.

=== Assess Your Infant for Signs of Cerebral Palsy ===
 +
#Look for common infant CP symptoms. These generally appear very early on, and most infants will begin to show signs of CP by the age of 3 months. Symptoms will vary from infant to infant, and the severity of each symptom will also vary from one infant to another.[[Image:Take Care of an Infant With Cerebral Palsy Step 1.jpg|center]]
 +
#Recognize early cerebral palsy symptoms in infants, which include seizures, jitters, irritability, feeding problems, excessive drooling, tremors, respiratory issues and lethargy. In severe CP cases, an infant may enter a coma.[[Image:Take Care of an Infant With Cerebral Palsy Step 2.jpg|center]]
 +
#Ask your pediatrician for an ultrasound or an MRI of your infant after he is 28 days old. The MRI can detect patterns of brain damage, which can help your doctor determine what the CP rick factor is for your infant.[[Image:Take Care of an Infant With Cerebral Palsy Step 3.jpg|center]]
 +
#Watch closely to see whether your infant meets her milestones. If she is slow to roll over, smile, sit up or crawl, mention this to your pediatrician.[[Image:Take Care of an Infant With Cerebral Palsy Step 4.jpg|center]]
 +
#Notice any abnormal muscle tone. The infant's body may be very stiff at times or overly relaxed and floppy.[[Image:Take Care of an Infant With Cerebral Palsy Step 5.jpg|center]]
 +
 
 +
=== Care for an Infant With Cerebral Palsy ===
 +
#Find a pediatrician who specializes in CP or who has experience in treating infants with CP.[[Image:Take Care of an Infant With Cerebral Palsy Step 6.jpg|center]]
 +
#Nurture your infant just like you would nurture any other infant.[[Image:Take Care of an Infant With Cerebral Palsy Step 7.jpg|center]]
 +
#* Hold your infant and cuddle him. Do your best to calm and sooth him when he is fidgety. Some infants with CP are happier in a swing or crib during fussy periods.
 +
#* Talk, sing and play with your infant. Regardless of the possibility of CP, these activities are very important in the development of any infant.
 +
#Weigh your infant weekly. It is common for CP infants to experience feeding problems, so it's important to monitor your baby's weight gain.[[Image:Take Care of an Infant With Cerebral Palsy Step 8.jpg|center]]
 +
#Keep your infant safe during bath time. If your infant cannot support his head or sit during bath time, be sure to use a baby seat with a slight slope. Get one that will support his head and back during the bath.[[Image:Take Care of an Infant With Cerebral Palsy Step 9.jpg|center]]
 +
#Provide supervision and a safe environment for an infant with cerebral palsy.[[Image:Take Care of an Infant With Cerebral Palsy Step 10.jpg|center]]
 +
#* There is always the risk of your CP infant having a seizure. Make certain he is safe and cannot harm himself during a seizure. Remain with him until the seizure is over. Knowing how to deal with seizures is a vital part of your infant's care.
 +
#Monitor your infant to ensure that she does not choke during feeding. As your infant begins eating solid food, she may be more prone to swallowing difficulties, making choking more of a concern.[[Image:Take Care of an Infant With Cerebral Palsy Step 11.jpg|center]]
 +
#Make sure your infant gets proper nutritional support. Special vitamin supplements can help fight colds and other respiratory infections. An infant with CP is more prone to infection and may have a suppressed immune system.[[Image:Take Care of an Infant With Cerebral Palsy Step 12.jpg|center]]
 +
 
 +
=== Start Your Infant in Therapy Immediately After Your Doctor Detects CP ===
 +
#Plan an educational program appropriate for your child. Be sure to address the physical and learning challenges your child may face. The sooner your infant gets started the better.[[Image:Take Care of an Infant With Cerebral Palsy Step 13.jpg|center]]
 +
#Get your infant started in therapy programs that are age appropriate and continue to evaluate therapy programs as your child develops.[[Image:Take Care of an Infant With Cerebral Palsy Step 14.jpg|center]]
 +
#* It is best to start physical therapy immediately. Treatment will help improve your infant's mobility. A wide range of exercises and equipment will help your infant achieve or improve his mobility.
 +
#* Start your infant with occupational therapy. This therapy addresses and works with the muscles in the wrist, hand and fingers. It also works on facial expressions, tongue control and swallowing.
 +
#* Speech therapy consists of exercise and routines to strengthen your child's speech muscles to improve the oral motor skills required for speech.
 +
#* Psychotherapy works to improve or eliminate behavioral issues in your child. It provides support, encouragement and self-esteem, and it reinforces positive actions.
 +
#Seek help. Join a local support group for parents who have children with CP. You may find it helpful to discuss treatment, therapy and some of the challenges you are facing with a child who has cerebral palsy with other parents of CP children.[[Image:Take Care of an Infant With Cerebral Palsy Step 15.jpg|center]]
 +
 
 +
=== Other Things to do ===
 +
#Get your child with CP to hop on one foot, or play with a ball, or other such activities. They are odd things, but if they work at it, these types of things can work on top of the therapy sessions, and are something the child will probably *want* to accomplish, and will help them gain muscle functionality.[[Image:Take Care of an Infant With Cerebral Palsy Step 16.jpg|center]]
 +
#When the child is old enough, enroll them in a piano course. Piano relies heavily on fine motor skills, and also works on the brain.

*Have your own life. Girls don't like people who have no lives, and who cling to them like plastic wrap. Some girls do like that, but for all the wrong reasons—either they are insecure and needy for attention, or they're control freaks who have a need for dominating people. Unless you want to sign up for either of those scenarios, make sure your life has no shortage of your own friendships, interest, hobbies and goals.
 
*Extended, direct eye contact is something lovers usually do. It's something you can do if the person you're talking to is noticeably romantically interested, but even then it's risky because the creep factor is high if you're mistaken. Look someone in the eye while they're talking, but also be sure to pull your gaze away periodically and shift your interest to other things. And check to make sure you don't have a tendency of staring at someone's body (chest, hands, shoes, whatever) even if in admiration or curiosity. In general, you don't want to make someone feel like they're under a [[Use a Microscope to Observe Microorganisms|microscope]].

*Whenever you're in a setting where there are girls around, talk to all of them and choose one you'd like to spend more time with. Make it a habit to try to exchange contact information with at least one girl every time you're around them. If she isn't interested, no big deal, there's always next time. If you go on a few dates and it doesn't turn into a relationship, that's no big deal either. The point is the more you date, the higher your chances of getting a girlfriend.
