What Causes Cerebral Palsy?

Cerebral palsy is a devastating condition that affects the brain and central nervous system of an infant or a child. It is often attributed to complications such as oxygen deprivation, or it may be attributed to head trauma or brain damage occurring before, during, or shortly after delivery.

What Are The Needs Of A Child With Cerebral Palsy?

The special needs of a child diagnosed with cerebral palsy can affect the whole family and can impose physical, emotional, and financial hardships. The condition is associated with a lifetime of expensive therapies and costly interventions.
