What is Spastic Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy?
Types of Cerebral Palsy
Spastic quadriplegia is considered the most severe manifestation of spastic cerebral palsy symptoms. People with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy are affected in all four limbs, the trunk and the face. Commonly, they are unable to walk, and often have intellectual disabilities and seizures. Their vision, hearing or speech may also be compromised.

Care Needs for Children with Spastic Quadriplegia
Due to the mobility limitations caused by spastic quadriplegia, children with this form of cerebral palsy may experience a variety of complications, including:
Poor bowel and bladder control
Breathing issues and respiratory complications
Since people living with spastic quadriplegia cerebral palsy have complex care needs that are often combined with cognitive, physical and social limitations, families can face challenges in planning for their care. Provisions must be made not only to meet their short-term needs but also to plan for their lives long term, when they may be in a place of particular vulnerability.
