Hypertonia or hypotonia are also common symptoms associated with cerebral palsy. Hypertonia occurs when muscle tone is increased, also known as spasticity. Hypotonia occurs when muscle tone is abnormally limp. A child with either of these conditions may have issues with speech, although their ability to understand it usually is not impacted.
