• Can you develop cerebral palsy later in life?

No. Cerebral palsy begins early in life, and there is no such thing as adult-onset cerebral palsy. However, the challenges posed by a diagnosis can become more difficult with age, making the illness appear to worsen. In truth, cerebral palsy is a non-progressive condition; while the symptoms may be harder to live with as the body ages, the disorder itself does not become more serious.
