Cerebral Palsy (CP) is caused by damage to the motor control centers of the developing brain. It can occur during pregnancy, during childbirth or a few months later. The symptoms are disturbances of sensation, depth perception and other sight-based perceptual problems. Communication and sometimes even cognition difficulties can arise. A secondary effect of CP can be epilepsy.
Spastic CP is a common type of the disorder. Both nervous system and muscular movement impairments are the consequences of spastic CP. There are many types of spastic CP depending on areas affected. But the common symptom is abnormal muscle actions. Symptoms like involuntary muscle movements, balancing problems etc., and secondary conditions including seizures, speech disorders etc., are characteristic of spastic CP.

Persons affected by the disorder may not be able to lead a normal life. They may have to be assisted constantly, whether walking, feeding, speaking or recognizing people. Until recently there was no cure for cerebral palsy. Only symptoms were treated to avoid complications from developing. However, stem cell research provides hope that new advancements will soon be made in treatment.
The Canadian Government has made the Disability Tax Credit and grants available to such physically challenged persons and their families. Disability Credit Consultants can take care of all documentation to help you get your Disability Tax Credit processed in a timely manner. They can also help you to apply to other programs such as the Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP).
