The condition of cerebral palsy has been thought of as a chronic situation with no positive change in posture or movement in. the patient expected. The recent use of yoked. prisms has changed this for many people afflicted· with cerebral palsy. The yoke prism affects the brain and has an affect on the posture and orientation of the patient. The condition of cerebral palsy as well as the neurology will be examined in this paper. A prescribing method will be introduced as well as three case studies.
