Cerebral palsy is a general term that refers to several potentially serious disorders that can arise when a baby’s brain is damaged or develops improperly. Unlike many serious birth injuries, cerebral palsy may go undetected until a child grows older, when symptoms appear after the child begins to have problems achieving normal developmental milestones.

Cerebral palsy describes a number of disorders that usually appear as problems affecting a child’s movement, posture, muscle coordination, senses, and intellectual abilities. The extent of the disorder and its symptoms are unique to each child, depending upon the specific brain injury the child suffered before or during birth.
