A. What is Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of neurological disorders that affect a person's movement and muscle coordination. It is caused by damage to the brain, typically occurring before or during birth, or during the first few years of a child's life. Symptoms of CP can vary depending on the severity of the brain damage, but may include difficulty with fine motor skills, such as writing or using scissors, and gross motor skills, such as walking or standing. In some cases, individuals with CP may also have intellectual or developmental disabilities, difficulty speaking, or seizures. CP is a lifelong condition, and while there is no cure, early intervention and therapy can help improve a child's mobility, communication, and other skills.
