Can people with cerebral palsy talk?


Yes, people with cerebral palsy (CP) can talk. Cerebral palsy is a group of neurological disorders that affect movement, coordination, and posture, but it does not necessarily affect speech or language. However, some individuals with CP may experience difficulty with speech due to muscle control issues, muscle weakness, or other factors. This can lead to problems with articulation, voice quality, and fluency.

There are various treatment options available to help individuals with CP improve their speech, including speech therapy, assistive technology, and augmentative and alternative communication devices. These tools and techniques can help individuals with CP communicate more effectively and express themselves more fully.
