dc.description.abstract Purpose: To explore the characteristics of cerebral palsy patient attended at CRP. Objectives: To describe the antenatal, natal and post natal characteristics of cerebral palsy patient. Methodology: The study design was cross-sectional study. Total 205 samples were selected through convenience sampling method for this study from Paediatric unit of Centre for the rehabilitation of the paralyzed (CRP). Data was collected from face to face interview with semi-structured questionnaire. Descriptive statistics through using SPSS software version 20 was used for data analysis which focused through table, Bar and pie chart etc. Results: It has found that spastic quadriplegia is the most common type of cerebral palsy and male child (71%) are more affected than female (29%). Majority of the patient came from rural area (57%) and the parents with low educational status. Moreover cerebral palsy is common in younger mother which was significant in test statistics. It was found that 48% delivery took place at home attended by untrained person (42%), history of birth asphyxia was present in around 67% cases which was common in home delivery (p=0.017).Beside this 60% mother had suffered for prolonged labor which could influence birth asphyxia as well as cerebral palsy. One third mother of cerebral palsy patient did not get family support during their pregnancy to have a healthy baby. Conclusion: illiteracy, younger age of mother, unavailability of health care facility to all, lack of awareness regarding pregnancy care, home delivery with untrained attendant could play as a contributing character to have cerebral palsy. Finally, education, awareness about child disability and its prevention and women empowerment can prevent the development of cerebral palsy in long term. en_US
