This video is on many immature sites - it shows a Russian man that can't properly speak or balance himself. The common text posted next to the video is "oh, drunk russian, ha-ha" and it's accapted by viewers. But the defiant proof that it's cerebral palsy is that a news agency found and did an interview with him and his family on his "fame" on the internet. They didn't know aqbout it and were not amused that thousands of people are making fun of cerebral palsy.
I mention this, because this is the most ‘popular’ pop culture reference of cerebral palsy online. Just youtube 'drunk russian'.
One paragraph states: "The life expectancy of those with CP is less than that of the general population but has improved with the utilization of modern medicine."
Two paragraphs later: "People with CP can usually expect to have a normal life expectancy; survival has been shown to be associated with the ability to ambulate, roll, and self-feed. As the condition does not affect reproductive function, people with CP can have children and parent successfully."
Pregnancy and childbirth?
This article does not have good information about what happens if a woman with CP becomes pregnant and gives birth - if the CP has any effects on symptoms during the pregnancy, difficulty of labour. --22.214.171.124 (talk) 01:50, 14 August 2016 (UTC)
Cerebral Palsy: Science and Clinical Practice book
I found a very good book here: Cerebral Palsy: Science and Clinical Practice which should be used to improve this article (even just by using the chapter titles as a springboard for research). --126.96.36.199 (talk) 03:50, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

- Hi @Ozzie10aaaa:, I put it there as a stop-gap to help my research until Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Medicine/Archive_92#Cochrane_Library_talk_page_templates.3F is implemented, because Cochrane reviews are highly regarded MEDRSes. --188.8.131.52 (talk) 10:48, 20 February 2017 (UTC)
The Arabic edition of this page is pleasingly well-developed, and might have a few ideas for topics to research. The Polish edition seems to be a translation of the English. --184.108.40.206 (talk) 22:55, 25 February 2017 (UTC)

Looks like it might be a good general resource for improving the largely-uncited signs and symptoms section. I'm a bit confused by the recent promotion of the article to B-class - although I have been working to improve the article, my experience as a reader, and the amount of citations needed still gels more with the c-class description, I think. --220.127.116.11 (talk) 22:04, 14 March 2017 (UTC)
