Abstract

The study of cognitive and neuropsychological functions in children with cerebral palsy (CP) is relevant both from a theoretical and a practical point of view. From the theoretical standpoint, an analytical documentation of cognitive development and of the neuropsychological patterns associated with the different clinical forms of CP is important for advancing our knowledge on the relations between neurobiological substrate and function. From the practical point of view, a comprehensive cognitive and neuropsychological evaluation represents the starting point for view, a comprehensive cognitive and neuropsychological evaluation represents the starting point for defining the rehabilitation program.
