Yes there is some difference between cp patient and non cp in case of touch.
Therefore who have cerebral palsy can experience abnormal sensation and perception. Some children with cerebral palsy have impaired ability to feel simple sensations like touch and pain. They may also have stereognosia, or difficulty perceiving and identifying objects using the sense of touch. A child with stereognosia, for example, would have trouble identifying a hard ball, sponge, or other objects placed in his hand without looking at the object.

A child with cerebral palsy may experience sensory integration dysfunction as a result of central nervous system damage. Sensory integration dysfunction is the inability of the brain to correctly process information brought in by the senses.

Yes there are differences in the sense of touch between cerebral palsy and non cerebral palsy patients. Children have been found to have trouble holding objects in their hands because they cannot feel it completely. The feeling of sensation matters a lot and people with CP must be treated with therapies that can increase their sense of touch.
