Conclusions Among young and middle-aged adults with CP, mood (affective) disorders were associated with pain, sleep disorders, and fatigue, and increasing co-occurrence of these factors further increased the likelihood of mood (affective) disorders. Further, comorbid neurodevelopmental conditions were also associated with mood (affective) disorders among adults with CP. Study findings could be used to improve screening strategies for mood (affective) disorders among adults with CP in the clinical setting.

Discussion The term, cerebral palsy, or CP has gone through many iterations with the first description in 1861 by W.J. Little who described it as “The condition of spastic rigidity of the limbs of newborn children.” The most recent definition is from Rosenbaun et al. in 2007 which states it is “a group of permanent disorders of the development of movement and posture, causing activity limitation, that are attributed to non-progressive disturbances that occurred in the developing fetal or infant brain. The motor disorders of cerebral palsy are often accompanied by disturbances of sensation, perception, cog...

Conclusions: Half of this group of young children with CP were reported to have pain. Pain restricted the children's everyday lives and seemed to be under-treated. If pain can be addressed early, the children's everyday lives are likely to be improved. Implications for rehabilitation There is a need to early identify and treat pain in young children. Important to discuss pain with parents irrespectively of the child's age and severity level. Pain interference assessment gives valuable information. Early treatment of pain might improve children's everyday life. PMID: 31526138 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Sleep positioning systems can be prescribed for children with cerebral palsy to help reduce or prevent hip migration, provide comfort to ease pain and/or improve sleep. As sleep disturbance is common in children with developmental disabilities, with impact on their carers' sleep, and as sleep positioning systems can be expensive, guidance is needed to support decisions as to their use

Dear Frankie, You may not know the impact you've had on my life. I have endless memories of ​our childhood together ​and ​I could probably write about them forever. But there are specific moments​​ looking back​ that I realize just in how many ways, I am who I am because of you. One of these moments I remember quite vividly. It was a beautiful summer day and we were excited because mom had the day off. Giancarlo (​o​ur older brother) was playing with friends and so it ended up being just me, you and mom. You were in that blue stroller you used to have when you were 8 years old. With my hand on one of the h...
