Cerebral Palsy deals with a group of neurological disorders namely impaired movement linked with abnormal reflexes, floppiness or rigidity of the limbs and trunk, abnormal posture, involuntary movements, unstable walking, and muscle tone or body posture. It's caused by damage that occurs, most often before birth, to the immature brain as it develops. It disrupts the brain's ability to control movement and maintain posture and balance. Mental impairment is more common among individuals with CP. Some children have complete or partial hearing loss. Speech and language disorders are present in more than a third of persons with CP. They face difficulty in framing words and speaking clearly. They have poor control of the muscles of the throat, mouth, and tongue, which causes Drooling.
Cerebral palsy is incurable, but treatment will often enhance a child's capabilities. Many children enjoy their adult lives if they can adequately manage their limitations. The earlier treatment starts, the better chance children have of overcoming developmental barriers or discovering new ways to accomplish the tasks that challenge them.
