What advancements are being made in the treatment of ACC?
ACC doesn’t get worse and it doesn’t get better. Dr. Tennison says instead of treatment, the best hope for the future is detecting a propensity to developmental abnormalities and predicting them and one day treating them, before they happen. For now, the only thing to do is treat the symptoms. And the symptoms vary with every ACC affected individual. Unfortunately, there are no major advancements in curing ACC however; there have been advancements in the treatment. Treatment in the case of ACC means helping the child maximize his or her potential for motor skills. A child with ACC will work with a rehabilitative team, which may include physical therapy, speech therapy, a neurologist and pediatrician.
