Symptoms of Cerebral Palsy
Although cerebral palsy typically develops before birth or during the birthing process, parents may not recognize the symptoms until the child is slightly older. Many of the effects associated with the condition are not discernible in newborns and only become apparent when the development of physical or cognitive abilities is compromised. Because of the severity of cerebral palsy, it is important for parents to identify the signs of this disorder as early as possible.

Identifying the Signs of Cerebral Palsy
As your child ages, there are a number of indications that may suggest he or she has cerebral palsy. Some of these are outward and obvious, whereas others will only become apparent upon close medical examination. The following are representative symptoms:
- Bone deformities
- Joint deformities
- Spastic movements
- Muscle atrophy
- Difficulty speaking
- Agility problems
- Cognitive disabilities
If your child exhibits these symptoms, it is important to seek medical attention promptly so that a proper diagnosis may be made and treatment might begin.
