Cerebral Palsy is a general term for a number of neurological conditions that appear early in childhood and affect movement and co-ordination. Symptoms can affect different people in different ways, including the area of the body affected and its severity. Symptoms include muscle stiffness or floppiness and muscle weakness, random, uncontrolled movements, affecting balance and co-ordination. Many individuals living with Cerebral Palsy also have a number of associated health problems including fits and seizures and swallowing problems. Some people with Cerebral Palsy may have communication and learning difficulties, although intellect is often unaffected.
