What is Cerebral Palsy?
Cerebral palsy is a group of disorders that affect a person's ability to move and to maintain balance and posture. The disorders appear in the first few years of life. Usually they do not get worse over time. People with cerebral palsy may have difficulty walking. Some have other medical conditions, including seizure disorders or intellectual disability
