Health Issues

Gary Noritz, MD

​Children with cerebral palsy have an impairment in the area of the brain that controls movement and muscle tone. Many of these children have normal intelligence, even though they have difficulty with motor control and movement. The signs and symptoms of cerebral palsy vary tremendously because there are many different types and degrees of disability.

Pediatrician Garey Noritz, MD, medical director of the Complex Health Care Clinic at Nationwide Children's Hospital, comes on the Healthy Children Radio show to talk about what characterizes this disability and new adaptive technologies to help children with CP.
