A Blog for My Daughter

Words from a Mother

So today we got her numbers and she qualifies for a helmet in 2 quadrants.

Her Cephalic Ratio is 95 (average is 75 – ie optimal).  This is calculated with some formula to differentiate the length of her head and her width, compared to average.

Her Cranial Vault Asymmetry Index is 17mm (10mm is ideal).  This is the symmetry in her head comparing the left side to right side.

In the end its all Chinese to me, but it give us base numbers and goals to strive for, even though we may not reach those numbers.  We just want to get as close as possible.

So insurance has been notified, now we wait on them.  Fingers crossed its really soon, I don’t want to miss any growth in her head that can help us set it right.
