Course description

Cerebral Palsy Awareness

Cerebral palsy is a lifetime disability. About 17 million people suffer from the disorder worldwide. Similarly, 350 million people worldwide have a close relationship with or a direct link to an adult or child with cerebral palsy. The effect of this disability varies from one person to another.

Symptoms range from total lack of voluntary motion all over the body to weakness in a single hand. However, it is the most common form of physical disability in children and adults alike. The disorder impairs motion and causes lifelong disability.

The complex disorder affects children and adults in a variety of ways: 1 in 3 patients with cerebral palsy or CP cannot walk; 1 in 4 cannot talk; 1 in 4 also have epilepsy, and 1 in 2 have an intellectual disability. Furthermore, the disability has no cure.
