truncal hypotonia vs cerebral palsy?

My son has myoclonic seizures, microcephaly, cerebral visual impairments, truncal hypotonia with no spastic, and congenital encephalopathy. We went to the neurologist last week and he said that my son was hyptonic. When I asked him to write it down so I would remember he said something about cerebral palsy but said he doesn't like to use that term as he likes congenital encephalopathy. so is the encephalopathy the same as cerebral palsy?

Nice post, I have lot of sympathy with your son, thanks for sharing us differences between truncal hypotonia and cerebral palsy as I also thought that both diseases have same characteristics. Thanks Robincristy for discussing this topic. Informative article.
