CEREBRAL PALSY

About Cerebral Palsy:
Cerebral Palsy also known as (CP) is a disorder that effects muscle tone, movement and motor skills.

CP is caused by brain damage that occurs before or duirng a child’s birth. It can also occur during the first 3 – 5 years of a child’s life.

This kind of brain damage can also cause other health issues like vision, hearing, and speech problems and learning disabilities.

 

Cerebral Palsy Symptoms:

CP is the most common motor disability in children.
Parents may notice the child is delayed in reaching developmental stages such as sitting, rolling, crawling or walking.

Other Symptoms include:

  • Abnormal Strength
  • Abnormal Tone
  • Abnormal Reflexes
  • Loss of control or co-ordination
  • Posture or balance problem
  • Associated handicaps
  • Cognitive Deficit
  • Persistent Motor Delay

 

How Occupational Therapy can Help Cerebral Palsy:
OT helps develop fine motor skills for dressing, feeding, writing, and other activities of daily living. The therapist can identify problems with strength, abnormal muscle tone, eye-hand coordination, visual perceptual skills, and sensory processing skills.

The goal is for the individual to participate as actively and fully as they can in all areas of activities of daily living; such as self-care, play, and school skills.
