Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of disorders that affect muscle movement and coordination. In many cases, vision, hearing, and sensation are also affected.
The word “cerebral” means having to do with the brain. The word “palsy” means weakness or problems with body movement.
CP is the most common cause of motor disabilities in childhood.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Trusted Source, it affects at least 1.5 to 4 out of every 1,000 children worldwide.
