Cerebral palsy is a neurological condition that adversely affects a person’s motor skills, coordination and brain function. It is usually caused by deprivation of oxygen during gestation or birth. However, the signs of cerebral palsy (CP) may not become apparent until later in the child’s development.
If your child has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, he or she faces many difficulties in the years ahead. In fact, your child’s neurological disorders may prevent your child from reaching his or her full potential. You owe it to your child to get answers regarding what happened and to provide your child with the resources and developmental assistance he or she needs.
