Cerebral palsy (CP) is a neurological condition that affects movement, coordination, and posture. The severity of CP varies widely among affected individuals, and some children with CP may be able to walk independently, while others may require the use of mobility aids.
In general, children with mild to moderate CP may be able to walk independently, while those with more severe forms of the condition may require the use of mobility aids such as walkers, crutches, or wheelchairs. However, it is important to note that each child with CP is unique, and their ability to walk will depend on the type, severity, and location of their CP.
Early intervention and ongoing physical therapy can help improve a child’s ability to walk and may help prevent or delay the need for mobility aids. Additionally, assistive technologies such as braces, orthotics, and other adaptive equipment can also be helpful in improving a child’s mobility and independence.
