Early Signs of Cerebral Palsy – Birth to 12 Months [Infographic]

Cerebral palsy is a brain disorder that can affect muscle control, sensory skills and cognitive abilities. Because the symptoms of cerebral palsy range in severity, the condition may be difficult to diagnose in children with mild impairments. Parents are often the first to notice signs that their child may be missing developmental milestones. Trust your gut and talk to your pediatrician. We’ve created this infographic to demonstrate developmental milestones healthy children achieve in their first twelve months so that parents can seek early intervention and treatment options if they suspect cerebral palsy.

Very detailed infographic. Parents should be more observant especially during the first few years of development of their babies.
