Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of disorders that affects a person’s ability to move and maintain balance and posture. The condition is caused by damage that occurs to the brain as it is still developing, most often before birth. In the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network, a group of programs that estimates the number of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities in the U.S., it is estimated that about 1 in 345 children has CP. Although the condition is lifelong, there are numerous interventions that can help reduce its impact on the individual and improve their quality of life.
