Asymmetric tonic neck reflex: The arm and leg on the opposite side flex. If the neck is extended while a patient is lying on his or her back, the legs and arms also extend, and the back and neck arch.

Any surprising stimuli, such as noises, lights, or a paralisia cerebral em movement on your part, can trigger uncontrolled, often forceful movements involving the whole body. Minimize the number of distractions in the paralisia cerebral em setting.

Movements, lights, sounds, or other stimuli can make it difficult for your patient to cooperate.

Food pattern and nutritional status of children with cerebral palsy

Tell him or her about any paralisia cerebral em stimulus before it appears. For example, tell the patient before you move the dental chair.

Many people with cerebral palsy have mild or moderate mental retardation, but only 25 percent have a severe form.

In general, the study showed the contribution to problem resolutions regarding the cerebral palsy student education process from the implementation and evaluation of assistive technology resources through the universal design, providing independency and autonomy in the learning of scholar contents.

In the age range paralisia cerebral em years, the groups with hemiplegia and tetraplegia presented means below the lower limits of recommendation.


In the age range from years, both for boys and girls, the group with tetraplegia showed means of energy intake below the recommended Table 1. Table 1 Open in a separate window It was observed that most children with CP had daily bowel movements.

The rest of each group showed predominantly less than three bowel movements a paralisia cerebral em, on alternate days. All children studied had mild physical activity.

No children in the group with tetraplegia, five children in the group with hemiplegia, and one child in the group with diplegia reported moderate activity Table 2. Table 3 Nutritional status by anthropometry of paralisia cerebral em according to the types of hemiplegia and tetraplegia in cerebral palsy Open in a separate window Discussion In the review of food consumption and anthropometric measures, the group with diplegia showed results that were not considered for statistical analysis, since their sample size 3 was not representative.

In groups with hemiplegia and tetraplegia, it was observed that, until 3 years of age, energy intake remained adequate. From 3 to This fact can be explained by the difficulty in chewing and swallowing that these individuals might have, which is more significant in the group with tetraplegia, which may, perhaps, have been attenuated in the younger age groups due to food consistency of porridge and soups, more appropriate for this age group.

However, as important as energy intake, is the balance of macronutrients in the diet composition.

In this sense, the studied population showed an unbalanced dietary pattern, high in fat and low in carbohydrates. Paralisia cerebral em to Abanto et al 21there is no significant difference in healthy children and adolescents with CP and normal ones on the preference for salty snacks.

Similarly, the preference for fat instead of carbohydrates is described in healthy children and adolescents 22which may occur, among other possibilities, due to the higher palatability of fat, the influence of the media, the possibility of eating away from home, accompanying friends in the preference for fast food, and, especially, the family eating habits 23 - Therefore, the feeding patterns of children and adolescents is independent of health status, pointing to the need for nutrition education in general, and in particular for those with CP due to the lower amount of food intake and the need for change in consistency of food.


Among the complications associated with CP, constipation is a consequence of the low mobility of the body, difficulty in fluid intake, and inadequate food intake, due to dysphagia and low motility, because the abdominal muscles are always rigid, which contributes to slow peristalsis and the paralisia cerebral em drying of feces Exercise may benefit children with CP, improving muscle strength, cardiovascular function, and motor performance Interestingly, the group with tetraplegia had higher prevalence of difficulty in swallowing and chewing, as observed by other authors, confirming the importance of chewing and swallowing for nutritional status 32 - paralisia cerebral em The difficulty in chewing and swallowing is probably the determining factor in the nutritional status of children with CP and an early identification would allow the monitoring by suitable professionals, assisting the preparation of a more adequate diet for this population.

This fact was confirmed by Souza et al 35who assessed 20 children with CP who were treated at a rehabilitation center and accompanied by a multidisciplinary team. Dynamic monitoring of sitting posture for children with spastic cerebral palsy.
