  • Cerebral Palsy in Children

    Children with cerebral palsy have trouble controlling their movement. The condition is the most common disability that affects a child’s motor control.

    Cerebral palsy usually is caused by a brain injury or abnormal brain development before birth or early in life. Genetic causes, although less common, can also play a role.

    Healthy Children, the official parenting website of the American Academy of Pediatrics, provides an overview of what families need to know about cerebral palsy and how to help children who have it reach their full potential.
