From the moment the child’s medical record shows a diagnosis of cerebral palsy, his relatives do not leave the feeling of fear, grief and doom, because in their understanding, such a diagnosis means helplessness and isolation from normal full-fledged life.

Cerebral palsy develops due to a violation of the normal development of the Central nervous system or damage to the brain, which affects the ability to control your muscles. The manifestations of the disease are diverse, and correspond to the severity of the condition of a child with cerebral palsy: from the need for outside help throughout life, to the ability to walk using special means, or even completely independently.
