      Cerebral Palsy Guidance is a website dedicated to providing answers and practical help to parents of children with cerebral palsy. They offer in-depth information and articles on a wide range of topics related to cerebral palsy, including symptoms, common myths, education, communication, mobility, daily living skills, and transitioning to adulthood. There are a variety of effective teaching strategies for students with cerebral palsy, a brain disorder that becomes apparent during the early childhood years and is characterized by a lack of muscle control.

      Cerebral palsy—also known as CP—is a condition caused by injury to the parts of the brain that control our ability to use our muscles and bodies. Cerebral means having to do with the brain. Palsy means weakness or problems with using the muscles. Often the injury happens before birth, sometimes during delivery, or, like Jen, soon after. Thus, children with normal scans may have severe cerebral palsy, and children with clearly abnormal scans occasionally appear totally normal or have only mild physical evidence of cerebral palsy. As a group, though, children with cerebral palsy do have brain scars, cysts, and other changes which show up on scans more frequently than in normal.
