Abstract: The education of the cerebral palsied child has often been compared to making a telephone call on a disrupted switchboard. Only through a long process involving trial and error and repetition, can the call eventually be completed over another circuit. So it is with the cerebral palsied individual. The neurological pathways facilitating movement have been disrupted by a lesion, origin oftentimes unknown in certain areas of the brain, resulting in imbalance and incoordination.
