The movement and posture disorder of cerebral palsy (CP) is presumed to mainly be a consequence of the motor disorder, but accompanying disturbances with sensations and perception have also been suggested to influence motor function. The heterogeneous condition of CP is caused by an injury to the immature brain affecting movement and posture development. The attainment of standing and walking can be difficult and an assistive device to accomplish the tasks may be required for some children with CP. In this review, we enlightened the role of possible sensory and perceptual disturbances for standing difficulties in children with CP.


KEY WORDS: Cerebral palsy; Pediatrics; Mobility limitation
