Cerebral palsy is a highly prevent motor disorder that is well studied but not necessarily well understood. Caused through various damaged neural mechanisms, cerebral palsy has wide spread implications on both physiological and psychological health. Through use of both occupational and constraint-induced therapy, improvements in motor movements can be seen but the issue of psychology well being is not addressed. The author argues for the use of longitudinal studies in order to better understand the impact of various therapeutic methods.
