Sensory integration, Rood's protocol, and Electrical stimulation were the key aspects of management. 8 weeks of rehabilitation protocol was given and the effect of physiotherapy was seen in the case. Post 8 weeks’ significant improvement was seen in muscle tone and range of motion was imitated by the patient.
