The paper “ Cerebral Palsy in Children - Significant Motor Abilities, Speech Problems, Delay of Language, Behavior and Social Challenges” is an outstanding example of a PowerPoint presentation on health sciences & medicine. Cerebral Palsy is one of the commonest physical conditions in the western world, particularly among children. Research shows that out of 1000 babies 2-2.5 of these children have cerebral palsy condition. Due to malformation and brain damage caused by cerebral palsy the development of the affected children is highly affected even though most such children can live to be adults.

Such children may be highly intelligent or average and thus they attend classes with children without this condition (Rosenbaum, 2003; Kartha, 2009). Definition of Cerebral PalsySlide 4Malformation of the brainCerebral Palsy is the malformation of the brain caused by the interruption of the brain development in infants particularly when the fetus does not stay in its right place or does not generate sufficient cells in the brain during the early periods of pregnancy (Gersh, 1998; Schmerzier, 1999). Neurological DamageCerebral Palsy is a condition that results from injury or damage of the brain during, before, and after pregnancy.

When the nervous system of the baby is affected it causes paralysis which affects the baby’ s brain. Neurological damage or injury is caused by difficulties in delivery, premature births, and trauma in the brain (Gersh, 1998; Schmerzier, 1999). Slide 5 Brain (Motor Movement)The motor movement in children is strongly connected with brain malformation or damage. The nervous system in children comprises of two parts; the peripheral nervous system and the central nervous system (Gersh, 1998). The Motor Cortex is basically the beginning point of the motor movement.

The interpretation of the message occurs in two parts: the Basal Ganglia and the Cerebellum. After processing the message it moves to the spinal cord. In order for the right muscle to start the message has to go back to the peripheral nervous system (Gersh, 1998).
