Cerebral Palsy Symptoms

Symptoms of CP: What You Should Look For

There are many symptoms that appear when a person has Cerebral Palsy. These symptoms greatly vary depending upon how much brain damage occurred and what type of Cerebral Palsy an individual has. Keep in mind that some people with Cerebral Palsy may not necessarily have all of these symptoms. Each person's body reacts differently to the condition; some individuals have severe forms of the symptoms while other people may appear to have very slight forms of the symptoms. Many children who have Cerebral Palsy are diagnosed during infancy, typically before the age of three.
