Cerebral palsy (CP) is a lifelong physical disability caused by a group of disorders that affect a person’s ability to move. The term “cerebral palsy” literally means that the brain lacks control over the muscles in the body. Damage to the developing brain during pregnancy​ or around the time of birth is the cause of CP. Body movement, muscle control, muscle coordination, muscle tone, reflex, posture, and balance are all affected by this disability.

This course offers a detailed description of cerebral palsy, including how it is diagnosed and classified. The types of CP vary widely, and each type is explained in full. Common treatments for CP are covered, along with the therapeutic approaches of music therapy and spider therapy. The course concludes with a discussion of the innovations made possible by artificial intelligence to improve the quality of life for people with cerebral palsy.
