...Cerebral Palsy in Infants Cerebral palsy (CP) refers to a motor function abnormality, as well as, postural tone thatthose suffering from it acquire early in life, at times even prior to birth (Shepherd 7). The symptoms and signs of the disease usually present in infancy. While cerebral palsy could come across as a muscle condition in infants, it results from cerebral damage as the cerebrum is involved in muscle control (Shepherd 22). The cerebrum is also important for communicating and the ability to learn. In infants, it can be caused by the deprivation of hearing and seeing, although this is not very common. One common...
