Cerebral Palsy

Creating awareness about Cerebral Palsy has become of paramount importance as  it is increasingly becoming the commonest  cause of disability in India !  

So what is Cerebral Palsy-- It is an umbrella term for a group of disorders affecting body movement, posture and balance. Literally translated it means when the controls of Brain do not properly develop or get damaged because of various reasons, CP happens. 

There is no cure for CP but early assessment and treatment can improve the lives of people afflicted with Cerebral Palsy  ! 

Knowing more about CP will also help in minimising the chances of its occurrence and above all

TLC - Tender Loving Care, understanding that CP is not a disease and that children with cerebral palsy may have a lot of problems but they also are fully capable of achieving and succeding, to make their lives meaningful and happy.This can happen only with the  help of their families and with lots of efforts from all persons concerned !!.

An article in today's Metroplus prompted me to read more about CP, ! See the link below
