Cerebral Palsy


Cerebral palsy is an umbrella term covering a group of non-progressive, but often changing, motor impairment conditions that affect children in different ways causing impairment in posture, movement and co-ordination.

Children with cerebral palsy need the support of a team of professionals, including a Speech and Language Therapist, who will work together to look after all the child's development needs. The Speech and Language Therapist will be able to advise on feeding, as well as communication skills.

Some children may need to use a communication system other than speech to support their speech and language development - our Speech and Language Therapist will also be able to offer advice on this.
