Ataxic Cerebral Palsy

The medical definition of ataxic cerebral palsy is a form of CP that affects the sense of balance and depth perception. Affected persons with ataxic cerebral palsy often have low muscle tone, very poor balance, poor coordination; walk unsteadily with a wide-based gait, placing their feet unusually far apart; and experience difficulty when attempting quick or precise movements, such as writing or buttoning a shirt or even eating.

Children with ataxic cerbral palsy may also have "intention tremor". In this form of tremor, beginning a voluntary movement, such as reaching for a object causes a trembling that affects the body part being used and that worsens as the individual gets nearer to the desired object. The ataxic CP form affects an estimated 5 to 10 percent of cerebral palsy patients.The cause of ataxic cerbral palsy may include oxygen deprivation during birth (birth aphexia), fetal distress, infections, Rh Disease and other possible birthing traumas and injuries.
