Children who have spastic CP may have difficulty walking, talking, eating, and learning. Children with ataxic CP may have trouble speaking, swallowing, and breathing. Dyskinetic CP may cause jerky movements. Mixed CP may affect several body systems. Non-specific CP may show no signs or symptoms.
Spastic Quadriplegic Children are children who suffer from cerebral palsy (CP) which causes muscle contractions and spasms. This condition affects their ability to move and control their limbs. The most common symptoms include difficulty walking, poor coordination, and problems with speech.
The diagnosis of CP is usually made when a baby is born and confirmed during the first year of life. It is caused by damage to the brain before birth or during early development. There are two types of CP: Spastic and Atypical. Spastic CP occurs when there is damage to the part of the brain that controls movement. In this type of CP, muscles become stiff and tight causing involuntary movements.
Atypical CP is less common than spastic CP. It is caused by a problem with the way nerve cells develop. It often starts at birth and is diagnosed later. Symptoms may include seizures, vision loss, hearing loss, intellectual disability, and learning difficulties.
