Cerebral Palsy (known also as “CP”) is a group of disorders that affect a person’s ability to move and maintain balance and posture.  It is caused by abnormal brain development or damage to the developing brain that affects a person’s ability to control their muscles.  CP symptoms can range from mild to more extreme, and the treatments depend on the nature of the disease.
