New Definition and Classification of Cerebral Palsy Proposed

Nov 19, 2005
 

"(OPENPRESS) November 19, 2005 -- Dr. Anthony Stein, Director of the CP Research Foundation, has joined several of the Europe’s leading experts in pediatrics and neurology to propose a new definition of cerebral palsy, a complex developmental disability that affects many thousands of people throughout the world.

The new definition states, “Cerebral palsy (CP) describes a group of disorders of the development of movement and posture, causing activity limitation, that are attributed to non-progressive disturbances that occurred in the developing fetal or infant brain. The motor disorders of cerebral palsy are often accompanied by disturbances of sensation, cognition, communication, perception, and/or behavior, and/or by a seizure disorder.”

The definition and classification of cerebral palsy, along with commentary by the authors, are available in the August volume of Developmental Medicine and Child Neurology, the world’s leading journal on pediatric medicine.

Earlier this year a conference of international experts in was convened in Bethesda, Maryland, to review existing global definitions and classifications of cerebral palsy. "
