Including a child with severe cerebral palsy in physical education a case study

Case Study Of A Child In School

Cerebral palsy CP affects muscle tone, movement, and motor skills the ability to move in a coordinated and purposeful way. CP is usually caused by brain damage that happens before or during a child's birth, or during the first few years of life. Cerebral palsy is one of the most common congenital childhood disorders. How CP affects each person depends on which part or parts of the brain are involved.

Some people have only mild impairment, while others are severely affected. For example, brain damage can be limited, affecting only the part of the brain that controls walking, or it can be more extensive, affecting muscle control of the entire body. Although CP doesn't get progressively worse, how it affects a person's body can change as children grow and develop. Because bullies often target students who seem "different," health conditions like CP can put kids and teens at higher risk for bullying.
