Cognitive Processes functioning a part of CP?

Are there known cognitive processes affected by having CP?  My 12 year old son who has mild CP seems to get foggy, has a hard time staying on task and focused.  This poses a problem with organization and following directions.

Hi,

Are you seeing a neurologist for your son? What other symptoms does he have?

Secondary conditions associated with cerebral palsy can include seizures, epilepsy, speech or communication disorders, eating problems, sensory impairments, mental retardation, learning disabilities, and/or behavioral disorders.

You could read about the condition at the following link -

Let us know if you have any other doubts and post us about how your son is doing.

Regards.
