What are the symptoms of cerebral palsy (CP)?
The most common symptoms of cerebral palsy (CP) are movement problems caused by muscles that are either very tight or very loose. People with CP often have difficulty controlling their movements, or make unintended movements. They may have difficulty controlling their posture. CP can affect face and mouth muscles, and this can cause grimacing and difficulty when speaking, eating and swallowing.
