World Cerebral Palsy Day

World Cerebral Palsy Day (WCPD) is observed on the 6th of October every year. There are more than 17 million people living with cerebral palsy (CP) in the world. CP is the most common physical disability in childhood. It is a complex disability: 1 in 4 children with CP cannot talk, 1 in 4 cannot walk (60% are independent ambulators, 10 % walk with an aid, 30% use a wheelchair), 1 in 2 have an intellectual disability, and 1 in 4 has epilepsy. Why is the incidence of CP still increasing even with the advancement of modern technology & better neutralism care?
