What is Cerebral Palsy?

Cerebral palsy is a condition caused by damage to the brain during pregnancy, before, or after birth. Any injury to the child can cause a malformation of the brain. How it interacts with the child’s’ motor skills and intellectual capability can vary. They are dependent on how severe the damage is, where the injury occurred, and the nature of the injury. Causing speech disorders, difficulty with bodily movements, problems with coordination, & being incapable of taking care of oneself. This term refers to multiple disorders that affect a person’s mobility. I am not a healthcare professional just a college student trying to spread awareness for expecting parents, and healthcare providers.
