Abstract: This work focuses on a proposal for the evaluation and neuropsychological intervention of Dante, a 20-month-old baby, who suffers from Infantile Cerebral Palsy (ICP), with etiology of Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE). ICP is characterized by a sudden lesion in the developing brain, which causes a set of disorders in the development of movement and posture, conditioning the person's activity. The neuropsychological evaluation shows a neuropsychological profile characterized by a lesser affectation at a cognitive, socioemotional and adaptive level, and a greater alteration in areas related to feeding and motor control. The main objective of the neuropsychological intervention is that the child gradually acquires points of development in different areas, through a therapeutic plan in neurostimulation. The neuropsychological intervention will be of a cognitive and exploratory nature, with a frequency of three weekly sessions of 45 minutes each. After 6 months of rehabilitation, a review is carried out to assess the objectives achieved and the necessary changes. After the intervention, the evolution of the child throughout these six months of treatment is considered very positive, it is observed that he is gradually acquiring points of development in different areas.
