Cerebral Palsy and Autism | Birth Injury Justice Center
Cerebral palsy is not a form of autism. According to the Mayo Clinic, cerebral palsy — which develops after the brain suffers severe damage before, during, or shortly after birth — causes problems with muscle control and tone, movement, and posture. On the other hand, autism mainly affects behavior, speech, and social interactions.
