March is Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month!
There are many definitions and diagnosis of CP - but very few patients experience the same symptoms. Most folks understand CP as a muscle disorder - when if fact it is a disorder of the brain chiefly due to an injury! CP is a disorder of the brain - causing muscles all over the body - including organ tissue - to not function properly. Cortical Vision Impairment is also a symptom of CP. The eyes work properly - but again, the brain doesn't receive the message properly.
