Author(s): Jinela Desouza

Background: Cerebral Palsy is the most common group of Permanent disorders of motor impairment resulting from non-progressive injury in the developing brain. Motor impairments are often accompanied by disturbances of sensation, perception, cognition, communication, musculoskeletal problems. This has increased the awareness of co-morbidities in children with CP and calls for an interdisciplinary management of these co-morbidities as they adversely affect the quality of life . Moreover, we are so blinded by the Physical disabilities that we fail to understand the Behavioural problems that these children go through. Thus , my present study was conducted to focus on the major comorbidities in children with Cerebral Palsy.
