Cerebral palsy is one of the most common causes of chronic childhood disability (1.4-2.7 % births). While preemies constitute a small minority of children with cerebral palsy, they are 25 times more likely to develop cerebral palsy than fullterm babies. Cerebral palsy (primarily diplegic cerebral palsy) occurs in 5-8 percent of babies born weighing less than 3 pounds.
