Cerebral palsy is the most common physical disability in early childhood. (Kathy Jones 2010). It has been clinically defined as a group of motor, cognitive, and perceptive impairments secondary to a non-progressive defect or lesion of the developing brain (CorrieErasmus2009).A variety of prenatal, perinatal and postnatal factors contribute to the development of cerebral palsy. The human brain undergoes development during the prenatal period and upto 2 years of age, a brain insult or injury occurring during this period may result in cerebral palsy. (Whaley and wongs 2009).
A collaborative perinatal project was conducted; in which 45000 children were regularly monitored from in utero to the age of 7 years found most children with cerebral palsy had been born at term with uncomplicated labour and deliveries. In 80percent of the cases, features were identified pointing to antenatal factors causing abnormal brain development.10 percent of the children with cerebral palsy had evidence of intrapartum asphyxia.(Michael Johnson 2010)
