Not an issue: This is a curious disorder of older school age kids and adolescents. At 3, various forms of speech and language delay, verbal apraxia etc are more common and relevant. An evaluation by a developmental pediatrician and speech and language pathologist would give you more information.

My son has cerebal palsy and speech delay he smashing his head in frustation or when can't get his own way would this make his CP worse?

My son has cerebal palsy and speech delay he smashing his head in frustation or when can't get his own way would this make his CP worse?

Unlikely: Head banging is not limited to CP kids. In a way it is just an amplification of the early infant fussing. I've never heard or seen a head banger with a real head injury. This likely caught on when he noticed it grabbed your attention. If you ignore it (don't lock eyes), watching him out of peripheral vision, for safety, it should fade over time. Teaching some sign language may help with the frustration.
