Anything possible: Cerebral palsy can range from very severe physical and mental effects (quadruplegia & inability to communicate) to minimal local motor effects (one body part paralyzed or weakened) without any mental effects; there is no "average."

Im under chronic stress all the time, I am 18 years old. And have a lot of issues. Does this mean that my IQ will be dropping?
Not permanently: High stress can impair memory & concentration so you might perform less well on an iq test taken when stressed, but it should not permanently impair your intelligence. It is important to take steps to manage your stress, like exercise, adequate sleep, meditation, counseling & healthy diet. Supplements can help too, esp. B complex, vit c, magnesium, ashwagandha, rhodiola & cordyceps. Good luck! ...Read more
What happens if sodium valproate lowers a fetuses IQ does it mean it lowers my own when I take it?
No: The fetal nervous system is developing and there are many medications that are harmful for the fetus that are fine for an adult.

I took an iq test, I was 20 years old.I took the iq test at a mental hospital. I had a iq of 77. What does this mean?

On a Wechsler-Bellevue scale your number would be below average, but not knowing the hospital scale, or accuracy of the test, cannot assume any significance. You could have your records reviewed by a psychologist or psychiatrist for a much better assessment. ...Read more
Ignorance: Ignorance is probably the best answer. Because people with CP may talk or walk differently the assumption usually is that they are not as intelligent. While some people with CP do have lower iqs and learning problems this is by no means the rule. ...Read more

Tests must be appropriate; e.g. motor impairment may lower a score on non-verbal IQ tests with timed motor tasks. Deafness may require a test with no language component, like the Leiter-3.
