Cerebral palsy is primarily a disorder of movement and posture. It is defined as an “umbrella term covering a group of non-progressive, but often changing, motor
impairment syndromes secondary to lesions or anomalies of the brain arising in the early stages of its development”.
The brain damage is caused by brain injury or abnormal development of the brain that occurs while a child’s brain is still developing — before birth, during birth, or immediately after birth.
Cerebral Palsy affects body movement, muscle control, muscle coordination, muscle tone, reflex, posture and balance. It can also impact fine motor skills, gross motor skills and oral motor functioning.
