Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of disorders that affect a person’s ability to move and maintain balance and posture. CP is the most common motor disability in childhood. CDC estimates that an average of 1 in 323 children in the U.S. have CP.
Children reach milestones in how they play, learn, speak, behave, and move. CDC has checklists to help parents and others track a child’s development.
