What are the most common signs of cerebral palsy?
Signs and symptoms of cerebral palsy can vary, however when a child is suffering from CP they may present one or more of the following common signs:
- Developmental delay or delays in reaching motor skills milestones
- Abnormal muscle tone
- Lack of muscle coordination (ataxia)
- Unusual posture
- Persistent infant reflexes
- Difficulty hearing or seeing
- Early development of hand preference
- Excessive drooling or problems with swallowing
- Difficulty with sucking or eating
Many of times a child is not diagnosed with cerebral palsy at birth because the signs are not always visible at that time. Besides very severe cases, signs of cerebral palsy may not appear until the first three to five years of a child’s life as the brain and child develop. Due to the fact that the cerebral palsy is a brain disorder that does not get worse over time, the symptoms and signs usually do not worsen with age as well.
