What is Cerebral Palsy?
Cerebral Palsy is a group of chronic movement or posture disorders that are caused by the brain's inability to control the body? Cerebral palsey symptoms often appear at birth but may also not be recognized until well into the baby's first year. The degree of Cerebral Palsy varies from child to child and can include fine motor task difficulties, speech impairment, loss of balance, uncontrollable movements, drooling, mental impairment or seizures.
