Introduction to Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral Palsy is a congenital brain development disorder affecting movement and posture. These symptoms usually first appear during infancy or early childhood.
Unfortunately, with Cerebral Palsy, damage to the brain is permanent and there is no cure. However, if intervention is started early, effective management and support systems can greatly improve the quality of life of someone living with this condition.
Cerebral Palsy Information
Cerebral Palsy is the result of damage to the brain, usually from lack of oxygen in utero, which causes abnormal brain development. Cerebral Palsy is characterised by the inability to control motor functions normally and can affect the overall development of a child. It affects a child’s ability to explore, speak, learn, and become independent and thus may have lasting impacts on their overall functionality.
There are five major types of Cerebral Palsy: Spastic, Ataxic, Athetoid, Hypotonic, and mixed type. Symptoms of Cerebral Palsy can vary greatly and no two people with this condition are the same. They may include issues with balance and coordination, stiff muscles, involuntary movements or tremors, slow movements, learning difficulties, difficulty swallowing and/or walking, difficulty with fine motor skills such as buttoning clothes or picking up utensils, and it can even lead to blindness, epilepsy, or seizures.
The type of movement issues an individual with Cerebral Palsy may experience can depend on how severely their Brain Injury has affected their muscle tone, control, and coordination.
