Cerebral palsy is not contagious, it is not curable and it does not typically become more or less severe over time. CP is not an illness. It is a group of disorders effecting a child's motor development, posture, and physical abilities.

The exact causes may be unclear until a detailed analysis is conducted. Even then, identifying the causes may be impossible due to the complexities involved. 

With appropriate treatment, a person with CP may be able to live on their own, maintain a career and have an extremely fulfilling life.
