Cerebral Palsy (CP): Cerebral Palsy happens when there’s damage to brain areas that control muscle movement, or when those areas don’t develop as they should. CP is caused by damage to or abnormalities inside the developing brain that disrupt the brain’s ability to control movement and maintain posture and balance (CDC,2023). Individuals with CP have varying levels of function; Some may walk without limitations, and some may utilize a wheelchair, cane or crutches to move around (NIH,2022). CP can impact fine and gross motor functions due to the stiff muscles and difficulty with balance and posture.
