Submitted by jrlaw on Nov 30th, 2009

Children who suffer from cerebral palsy will encounter many significant hurdles throughout their lives. Challenges for kids with CP generally involve difficulty performing basic functions such as speaking, moving and eating. This is mainly because of the substantial damage that is often caused to the tendons, nerves, muscles and bones. Kids with cerebral palsy are also more prone to mental retardation. However, all but the most severely affected children have the potential to enjoy a rather satisfying life despite their condition.
