*Types of Physical Disabilities
There are 2 major groups of physical disabilities: neuromotor impairments and muscula
skeletal conditions.
Neuromotor impairments are when the central nervous system is impaired-that means the spinal chord and the
ain. These are the parts of the body which send signals to the rest of the body. If one or both are damaged then an impairment will occur.
skeletal conditions are when the the muscles or limbs themselves are impaired.
For example, if a child loses the ability to control the muscles on the right side of their body, it would be a neuromotor impairment if the nerves which provide the pathway for the impulses to move the muscles are damaged. It would be a muscula
skeletal condition if the muscles on the right side of the body were damaged and could not move-even with the nerves providing the proper impulses.
See the difference?
The readings below will target the major childhood nueromotor impairments: Cere
al Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, seizure disorders, an spina bifida.
You can choose any impairments above or you can choose your own. Remember it needs to be birth- age 21
