Sometimes, movement disorders in people with cerebral palsy make it difficult to complete everyday tasks and can restrict communication, access to learning and participation in activities.
When motor issues are coupled with cognitive problems, activities and resources must be adapted to each person accordingly.
Assistive technology is particularly helpful for people with cerebral palsy as it allows them to complete everyday tasks such as using the computer, controlling their environment, studying and enjoying leisure activities in a simplified, alternative way.
