Understanding Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy is a
brain injury that occurs when there is damage to the brain before, during or shortly
after birth. This brain injury can cause severe problems with fine motor
skills that can impact a child's ability to walk, control simple movements,
balance, and ability to learn. Currently, there is no cure for cerebral
palsy and this is a condition that can easily cost millions over a lifetime of care.
