Recognition of Learning Problems Accompanying Primary Handicapping Conditions and Their Impact on Instructional Programs for Multihandicapped Students.
Sears, Carol J.
The paper addresses the secondary learning problems that accompany various types of cerebral palsy. Three major types of cerebral palsy are reviewed: spastic, athetoid, and ataxic. Among associated disabilities noted are disorders with the primitive reflexes (such as the moro and asymmetric tonic neck reflexes). Sensory impairments associated with cerebral palsy include disorders of touch (such as tactile defensiveness), proprioception (such as poor spatial relationships), auditory development (hearing loss, central auditory disorders, difficulties in auditory perception), and visual functioning (such as extraocular muscular imbalance, deficits in depth perception, and various central visual disorders).
