Cerebral palsy:

 

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of permanent movement disorders that appear in early childhood. In general, cerebral palsy causes impaired movement associated with abnormal reflexes, floppiness or rigidity of the limbs and trunk, abnormal posture, involuntary movements, unsteady walking, or some combination of these.Because of damage to certain parts of the brain, voluntary or involuntary movements or both can be affected.Cerebral palsy is not contagious, it does not necessarily affect intelligence or cognitive ability, and it is not progressive, so it does not get worse with age. Some people find that symptoms improve over time.
