In brief: Global delay

Many children with cerebral palsy have a delay in achieving their milestones, whether it be walking, talking, coordinated hand movements, etc.
Sometimes this can also include more basic functions, like swallowing. The cases where all or almost all functions are included are considered globally delayed.
