Cerebral Palsy


Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a group of neurological disorders appearing in infancy or early childhood that permanently affect a person’s movement, muscle coordination and balance. 

Children with cerebral palsy have delays reaching motor milestones (i.e., sitting, crawling, walking) and exhibit a wide variety and severity of symptoms, including: lack of muscle coordination; variations in muscle tone, either too stiff or too floppy; weakness in one or more arm or leg; difficulties swallowing or speaking; random involuntary movements; difficulty with precise movements such as writing or buttoning a shirt.
