Abstract

Cerebral palsy describes a group of upper motor neuron syndromes secondary to a wide range of genetic and acquired disorders of early brain development. In addition to primary impairments in gross and fine motor function, there may be associated problems with cognition, seizures, vision, swallowing, speech, bowel=bladder, and orthopedic deformities. It is the most prevalent chronic childhood motor disability, affecting 2-3=1000 school aged children. Cerebral palsy is considered nonprogressive, but neurological findings may change or progress over time. Although comprehensive longitudinal studies are limited, the majority of children with cerebral palsy develop into adulthood, actively participating in societal life.
