The most common cause is that the brain is damaged secondary to prematurity. About 40 per cent of children with cerebral palsy are premature.
This usually affects the cortex which is the biggest section of the brain and is responsible for voluntary muscle movement, communication, and many thought processes including the interpretation of the senses of hearing and sight.
Problems can also develop because of a blocked blood vessel, complications in labour, or as a result of an infection which happens before or after birth, causing meningitis or encephalitis.
