Cerebral palsy is a disorder that affects muscle structure, motor skills and body coordination. Children with cerebral palsy begin to experience many difficulties from infancy. The period before diagnosis creates a sense of uncertainty, while after diagnosis it is a period of emotional struggle. Extensive research in the field of psychology has shown that problems such as anxiety and depression are more common in children with physical disorders and who undergo longterm treatment than healthy children. With his birth, a difficult process began not only for the child, but also for the family. In this article, families, their experiences, emotional states, their own pens, and the voice of a senior pediatric orthopedist are discussed. From the perspective of the psychologist, the effects of this lifelong disorder on the child and his family and what needs to be done are included.
