Brief description Contrary to traditional belief few cases of cerebral palsy are due to problems at birth. Most have earlier origins. Sophisticated new methods have found that many developmental brain disorders e.g. autism, intellectual disability and epilepsy are associated with submicroscopic but genetically large alterations in the genetic code of these children. This novel study will seek these alterations in a large group of Australian cerebral palsy families. The pilot data show novel and exciting findings.
