2) Problems of gestational history or neonatal state were found in 72.5% of the cerebral palsied.

3) Gestational period was below than 37 weeks in 31.7% of the cerebral palsied, and birth weight is below than 2.5 kg in 29% of cerebral palsied.

4) The frequencies of low birth-weight and prematurity were higher in spantic diparesis than athetoid type, and there were statistical significance in difference(p<0.05).
