Cerebral Palsy Definition - Cerebral Palsy A-Z
What is the Definition of Cerebral Palsy? Cerebral palsy is a term used to describe a group of chronic conditions affecting body movements and muscle coordination. It is caused by damage to one or more specific areas of the brain, usually occurring during fetal development, or during infancy. It can also occur before, during or shortly following birth.
"Cerebral" refers to the brain and "Palsy" to a disorder of movement or posture. If someone has cerebral palsy it means that because of an injury to their brain (cerebral) they are not able to use some of the muscles in their body in the normal way (palsy). Children with cerebral palsy may not be able to walk, talk, eat or play in the same ways as most other children. Cerebral palsy is neither progressive nor communicable . It is also not "curable" in the accepted sense, although education, therapy and applied technology can help persons with cerebral palsy lead productive lives. It is important to know that cerebral palsy is not a disease or illness. It isn't contagious and it doesn't get worse. Children who have cerebral palsy will have it all their lives.

Parents Medical Problems
Cerebral palsy (CP) is one of the most common congenital (existing before birth or at birth) disorders of childhood. About 500,000 children and adults of all ages in this country have cerebral palsy, and the overall incidence is rising because premature babies who once would have died are surviving. A preemie's risk of cerebral palsy is much higher than that of a full-term baby. Premature babies who weigh less than 3.3 pounds (1510 grams) are up to 30 times more likely to develop cerebral palsy than full-term babies. What Is Cerebral Palsy?
Cerebral palsy is a disorder that affects motor skills (the ability to move in a coordinated and purposeful way), muscle tone, and muscle movement. Under usual circumstances, people learn to move their muscles in a coordinated and smooth way, although simple motions, even standing still, require a complicated interaction of muscles and nerves. Because a child who has cerebral palsy has difficulty controlling or coordinating his muscles , even these simple movements are difficult. Other problems children with cerebral palsy may develop include eating difficulties, bladder and bowel control problems, breathing problems, and learning disabilities.

Quick Reference and Fact Sheets Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy refers to a group of conditions that affect control of movement and posture. Because of damage to one or more parts of the brain that control movement, an affected child cannot move his or her muscles normally. While symptoms range from mild to severe, the condition does not get worse as the child gets older. With treatment, most children can significantly improve their abilities. Many children with cerebral palsy have other problems that require treatment. These include mental retardation; learning disabilities; seizures; and vision, hearing and speech problems.
How common is cerebral palsy?
Cerebral palsy usually is not diagnosed until a child is about 2 to 3 years of age. About 2 to 3 children in 1,000 over the age of three have cerebral palsy. About 500,000 children and adults of all ages in this country have cerebral palsy. What are the different types of cerebral palsy?

Treatments for CP ...
Welcome to our Cyberscrapbook! We created this page to share information with other families of children with disabilities - and more specifically those diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. Our son Joshua was born at 30 weeks gestation and later diagnosed with spastic quadraparesis cerebral palsy and PVL - periventricular leukomalacia. We were so fortunate to have many resources online when Josh was first diagnosed and we want to give something back hopefully helping someone else along the way. Josh is now 10 years old and is a wonderful kid. He's in a typical 5th grade classroom with an aide to help him with the physical things he can't do easily. He uses a power wheelchair but still is a GameCube and Playstation II fanatic! His favorite past time is using his new Apple Powerbook that he got for Christmas or using the telephone. He has memorized at least 100 phone numbers! Josh has a sister named MacKenzie who is quite a character. She is in first grade at Montessori. She loves to paint, draw, dance and ride horses. She is full of life, to say the least. In December 2004, we had our 3rd child, Emma-Grace. She was born via c-section and weighed 10lbs 1oz. She was born at 36 weeks due to the fact I had toxemia. She spent a week in the NICU for breathing and eating issues but got to come home the day after Christmas! She's such a perfect angel. Truly a blessing.

I never dreamt that tender blossoms
would be brown
or precious angels could come down
to live in the garden
of my giving heart... but here you are
brown angel
-Walter Dean Myers Our family 1996
Kimberly 6 months Kimberly Noelle Born March 8 1996, Kim came to us not by stork but by airplane from Wash DC. She was met at the airport by her new family - Brenda, Steve, and big brother Myles.
Grammy and Grandad were there too and as Myles says "Mom and Grammy were bawling and the men were taking pictures!". At birth she weighed 2 pounds 12 ounces and stayed in the hospital for 7 weeks to gain weight and then was in a foster home for about 3 weeks while our paperwork was processed. She was so tiny and slept a LOT!
Little did we know how this beautiful baby would change all of our lives! Kimberly had been born 10 weeks premature and at her first pediatric visit the doctor said she didn't seem to have any of the common problems that preemies often face. We felt very blessed. Then at 6 months old Kim's eyes began crossing and she had the first of two surgeries to correct it. At this time mom began to have the feeling that there was more to come. After being assured by the doc's that she would "catch up in a couple of years" Kim was diagnosed at 15 months with Periventricular Leukomalacia. In her case the PVL also caused Cerebral Palsy. Since then we have learned, laughed, cried, and loved her more than we ever thought possible. She is teaching us what matters most in life.
