Anorexia/Eating Disorders/EASY DOES IT

Question
I was wondering would you please tell me: is a fact that people who have brain damage resulting in cerebral palsy have difficulty in:

using your hands for a long time like writing, cutting up food and so on?
getting frustrated explaining wot you mean or wot your talking about?
thinking before you speak?
trouble with speech (like occasionally stutter while starting to say some thing?
         pronouncing some letters?
         bad spelling of words?

If the answer is “yes, It is a fact” would you be able to explain why?

(P.S would you please try to give your answer in a easy way that I can understand)
Thanks

Answer
This is really not my area of expertise and I'm not qualified to answer. I have a colleague who is a physician, teaches anatomy and physiology and also just received a masters degree in psychology. Perhaps he can help. His email address is: Michael.samuels@colbycc.edu

Expertise

I can answer questions specifically geared towards athletes and their eating issues. I would be able to assist parents or coaches with questions or concerns about disordered eating practices often found in the exercise and sports settings. I also have experience in training and conditioning so I am in a position to discus how the two interrelate.

Experience

I have a bachelor's degree in sports medicine and master's degrees in sport psychology and clinical counseling. I have done counseling with individuals, couples, and families, with specialization in athletes. Past clients have included triathletes, dancers, college cyclists, and Pro Tour cyclists.
