Overview

Cerebral palsy (CP) may be defined as a group of disorders of the development of movement and posture which lead to activity limitation and are attributed to non-progressive disturbances occurred during the development of fetal or infant brain. Often the motor disorders of the cerebral palsy are accompanied by disturbances of sensation, perception, cognition, communication and/or by seizure disorder. The group of disorders is a result of a range of etiologies occurring in prenatal, perinatal or post natal period and range in severity. Although the condition is non progressive but overtime the clinical manifestations may change as the brain develops with co-occurrence of other neurological impairments.
