Behavioral Traits of a CP affected child.
A child with Cerebral Palsy have problems while eating, excessive drooling while swallowing food, not able to roll over, crawl or sit after all these months.
The child must be diagnosed by professionals as these may be few of the symptoms of Cerebral Palsy.
It is the loss or impairment of motor functions which affects body movement, muscle control, muscle coordination, muscle tone, reflex, posture and balance. It can also impact fine motor skills, gross motor skills and oral motor functioning.
Apart from eating problems and trouble in physical movements, other signs that might ring an alarm are: involuntary movement of hands, legs or other parts of the body, stiff muscles, lack of muscle
coordination, delay in speech development, blindness, intellectual disability & using one side of the body too often.
Most children are born with CP, but they may not show signs of it until months or years later. Symptoms usually appear before a child reaches age 3 or 4. Call the doctor if you find any of these signs.
Early diagnosis and treatment are very important.

About CP Clinic
What is Cerebral Palsy?
The brain damage is caused by brain injury or abnormal development of the brain that occurs while a child’s brain is still developing — before birth, during birth, or immediately after birth. Some individuals are born with it while some acquire it later.
A child with CP will likely show signs of physical impairment which will vary from one individual to
another and ranges from mild to severe. It can affect arms, legs, and even the face and can affect one
limb, several, or all. It is the most common movement disorder in children and about three out of 1000
children in India suffer from it.
