Cerebral Palsay

It refers to a collection of conditions, where there is primarily a disorder of voluntary movement and /or co-ordination. It is not a disease, but caused by damage to the developing brain sometimes before birth, during birth or after birth. It can happen to any child, there is no warning and there is no cure. It is a physical condition that makes muscles hard to control. It does not make one less intelligent but it can make it very hard to communicate or to get around. It can be broadly categorized into three types :

1. SPASTIC: Where there is increased muscle tone and it is most commonly found.
2. ATHETIOD: Where there is disordered movements. Such as short and jerky movement.
3. ATAXIA: Where there is slow and writing movement. Thus a very severe disability affects all four limbs. A correct treatment from an early age can help ease these effects.
