Cerbral Palsy

Cerbral palsy is the misspelling of the condition, cerebral palsy, a disabling condition in which the brain's communication with muscles or groups of muscles in the body is inadequate, leaving the individual with limited movement and most often permanent disabilities. Cerebral palsy may be caused by damage to the brain during brain development or during the time of birth. It may also occur as a result of infections including encephalitis, herpes simplex infections and meningitis. The condition is characterized by symptoms such as seizures, muscle contractions, irregular breathing, delayed development of motor skills, mental retardation, speech development delays, and difficulty sucking or feeding. While there are limited treatment options available, there is no cure for cerebral palsy. The condition is lifelong, but does not worsen over time.
