Infants with possible cerebral palsy (CP) are commonly assumed to benefit from early diagnosis and early intervention, but substantial evidence for this is lacking. There is no consensus in the literature on a definition of ‘early’, but this review focuses on interventions initiated within the first 6 months after term age. We cover basic neuroscience, arguing for a beneficial effect of early intervention, and discuss why clinical research to support this convincingly is lacking. We argue that… Expand
Early diagnosis of cerebral palsy
TLDR
Based on research evidence, the best three tools to detect high risk of CP before the corrected age of 5 months old are neonatal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), the Prechtl Qualitative Assessment of General Movements (GMs), and the Hammersmith Infant Neurological Examination (HINE). Expand
[Brain plasticity and early rehabilitative care for children after neonatal arterial cerebral infarction].
TLDR
Data about the effect of anEarly physical rehabilitation program on the cerebral plasticity, and preliminary results of clinical studies in children with cerebral palsy strongly suggest the benefit of an early rehabilitation with a multidisciplinary approach. Expand
The role of early developmental intervention to influence neurobehavioral outcomes of children born preterm.
TLDR
Key components of early developmental interventions including commencing the intervention as early as possible, ideally in the neonatal intensive care unit, and promoting developmental skills overtime with an appropriate enriched environment are discussed. Expand
Motor Evoked Potentials as Potential Biomarkers of Early Atypical Corticospinal Tract Development in Infants with Perinatal Stroke
TLDR
It is found that age influences the ability to elicit an MEP from the MAH, and motor outcome may be related to MAH MEP absence. Expand
Cerebral palsy
TLDR
The use of more appropriate outcome measures encompassing quality of life and participation is helping to deliver treatments which are more meaningful for people with cerebral palsy and their carers. Expand
Cerebral Palsy: A Lifelong Challenge Asks for Early Intervention
TLDR
The three general spastic manifestations of CP hemiplegia, diplegia and tetraplegia are reviewed, the diagnostic procedures are described and a time schedule for an early intervention is delineated. Expand
Network Implementation of Guideline for Early Detection Decreases Age at Cerebral Palsy Diagnosis
TLDR
Large-scale implementation of international guidelines for early detection of CP is feasible in diverse high-risk infant follow-up clinics and received positively by families and without adversely affecting clinic operational flow. Expand
Current thinking in the health care management of children with cerebral palsy
TLDR
The six Fs framework provides a guide to developing shared goals with families in the management of cerebral palsy, which includes spasticity and dystonia, management of pain, hip surveillance, sleep and feeding, swallowing and nutrition. Expand
Cerebral Palsy: Early Markers of Clinical Phenotype and Functional Outcome
TLDR
It was found that 95% of children with CP did not have fidgety movements, with 100% having non-optimal MOS, and use of the MOS contributes to understanding later CP prognosis, including early markers for type and severity. Expand
Multivariate Analysis and Machine Learning in Cerebral Palsy Research
TLDR
It is expected that multivariate analysis and ML will play a bigger role in improving the diagnosis and treatment of CP to reduce mortality and morbidity rates, and enhance patient care for children with CP. Expand

Cerebral palsy--don't delay.
TLDR
The most promising predictive tool for CP is the general movements assessment, which assesses the quality of spontaneous movements of infants in the first 4 months of life, and a shift away from referral for intervention following a formal description of CP is recommended. Expand
Early developmental intervention programmes post-hospital discharge to prevent motor and cognitive impairments in preterm infants.
TLDR
Early intervention programmes for preterm infants have a positive influence on cognitive and motor outcomes during infancy, with the cognitive benefits persisting into pre-school age. Expand
A randomized controlled trial of early physiotherapy for high‐risk infants
TLDR
The aim of this study was to investigate the hypothesis that infants at high risk of cerebral palsy would benefit from early physiotherapy and found that Cerebral palsy was only accurately predicted in 45 (54%) infants. Expand
Early developmental intervention programmes provided post hospital discharge to prevent motor and cognitive impairment in preterm infants.
TLDR
Meta-analysis led to the conclusion that intervention improved cognitive outcomes at infancy, and effects on motor and cognitive impairment when early developmental interventions are provided within high-quality randomised trials with low risk of bias for sequence generation, allocation concealment, blinding of outcome measures and selective reporting bias. Expand
Proposed definition and classification of cerebral palsy, April 2005.
TLDR
A revised definition and classification of cerebral palsy is presented to meet the needs of clinicians, investigators, and health officials, and provide a common language for improved communication. Expand
Cerebral palsy: clinical care and neurological rehabilitation
TLDR
As the life expectancy of individuals with CP approaches that of the general population, therapies must be developed that address the needs of adults ageing with disability. Expand
Movement, imaging and neurobehavioral assessment as predictors of cerebral palsy in preterm infants
TLDR
The majority of infants who appeared to behave within normal limits and exhibit normal brain structure in the newborn period were classified as neurologically intact at follow-up, suggesting that a holistic approach to early detection of cerebral lesions is preferable to a single test. Expand
Intervention for infants with brain injury: results of a randomized controlled study.
TLDR
The results indicate that the intervention had minimal positive effects on the Bayley mental and motor development scores of infants in the intervention group, and further support to the minimal effects of stimulation and home intervention for infants with brain injury. Expand
A systematic review of the effects of early intervention on motor development.
TLDR
It is concluded that the type of intervention that might be beneficial for infants at preterm age differs from the type that is effective in infants who have reached at least term age. Expand
Does early age at brain insult predict worse outcome? Neuropsychological implications.
TLDR
These results question the advantages of early brain plasticity, demonstrating poorer outcome from very early insults, and increasingly better function with lesions later in childhood. Expand
