FYI: Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral Palsy is thought to occur from a brain injury suffered either by the fetus, resultant from a birth injury, or as a result of a trauma sustained by the child shortly after birth. Attempts to reduce the occurrence of medical negligence and doctor error during birth may help to reduce the rate of cerebral palsy occurring in American births. Although Cerebral Palsy is the largest developmental disability affecting children in the United States today, there is no American system for tracking the occurrence of the disability.
