Caption: A four year old girl with cerebral palsy is given a hug by her school teacher. Cerebral palsy is a developmental abnormality of the brain which results in weakness and incoordination of the limbs. The brain damage occurs before, during or shortly after birth and may be caused by injury, haemorrhage, lack of oxygen, meningitis, viral infection or faulty development. The most common disability is a spastic paralysis which may cause fixed deformities of the limbs. Defective sight and hearing, lack of balance, involuntary writhing movements and epilepsy are common and intelligence is often impaired.
