Cerebral Palsy is a blanket term used to describe loss or impairment of motor function. The condition affects movement, muscle control, muscle coordination, muscle tone, reflex, posture, and balance. It can also impact fine motor skills, gross motor skills, and speech.
Cerebral Palsy is caused by a brain injury or an abnormal development of the brain either during pregnancy, labour or immediately after birth. The condition is permanent and can range from mild to so severe that the child requires 24-hour care for the rest of their life.
