What is Hemiplegia?

Hemiplegia in children is a type of cerebral palsy that results from injury to the part of the brain that controls muscle movement.  The term hemiplegia means that the paralysis is on one vertical half of the body.  The paralysis in the body occurs on the side opposite to the affected part of the brain.  

Hemiplegia cannot be cured but there is a lot that can be done to minimise its effect and help children achieve their potential.
