Early Diagnosis and Treatment of Cerebral Palsy in Children with a History of Preterm Birth

KEY POINTS  Preterm children are at increased risk of cerebral palsy compared with term-born infants.  Early diagnosis of cerebral palsy is possible within the first 6 months of life using a combination of clinical history, neuroimaging, and physical examination.  Infants with cerebral palsy should be referred for cerebral palsy–specific early intervention, which includes task-specific training, environmental enrichment, and parental support.  Infants with cerebral palsy should be screened for comorbidities including pain, epilepsy, sleep disorders, visual impairment, and hearing impairments to maximize outcomes.
