Cerebral palsy (CP) can affect a child’s muscle tone, movement and speech. Some children might walk a little awkwardly but don’t need special help. Others benefit from technology and assistive devices to help them move and communicate. At Nemours, our orthopedic surgeons, neurologists and other CP specialists are experts in diagnosing cerebral palsy in children. We’re here to help kids with CP from the start — and keep them thriving as they grow.
