As you know, I know, directly, from personal experience, exactly how this is. And how much you wish her condition could improve --- if not forever, even for a month or so to provide some relief. And how you appreciate simple adult conversation, when so much of your communication has to be at such a basic level.
I'm not aware ( but then, CP isn't something I know much about ) of any test that measures future potential. I suspect it isn't likely to get greatly better than this, though maybe with some more specific training, she could learn some tasks and take on more self-care --- only a CP expert could tell you that. I find its best usually to assume that this is as good as it'll get, so that improvements can be a bonus, rather than to hope for too much, so reality comes as a disappointment. And if things aren't likely to get greatly better, at least you don't have the certainty that they will get worse.
