Mild Cerebral Palsy, if left untreated, is potentially more problematic than advanced cases of cerebral palsy. Mild cerebral palsy is often undetected in children as they are intellectually unaffected and are only physically limited.

What’s the problem?
Mild cerebral palsy is caused by a lower level of brain damage resulting in slight physical impairment. The symptoms are subtle and difficult to discern. Often symptoms are not as disruptive, and not apparent to the naked eye. Even parents and doctors are unlikely to recognize the symptoms of mild cerebral palsy, making early intervention difficult. This is unfortunate since early treatment tends to produce very positive results. Toe walking, for example, can be treated using specialized foot ware to train motor skills.
Abilities of People with Mild Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy affects each person differently, so it is hard to determine what any one person might (or might not) be able to do. Many people with mild cerebral palsy will be able to participate in almost any activity their peers do. Mild cerebral palsy sufferers will have more success in some kinds of activities more than others. For example, mild cerebral palsy children are better steered toward participating in sports like martial arts or swimming. Sports like football, baseball or basketball require a large amount of running, which can be difficult for people with mild cerebral palsy. Just as non-disabled people have different talents and difficulties, so do those with mild cerebral palsy. Take the time to ask questions and get to know people affected with mild cerebral palsy. They are people who have faced great challenges and survived.
