Hand Motor Function in Unilateral CP – Benefits of Peer Interaction
[Source: Your Therapy Source]
Therapeutic activities for children with unilateral cerebral palsy are often suggested to help improve hand motor function in children with unilateral cerebral palsy. A recent study indicated that there are benefits to child-to-child interaction when it comes to hand motor function in children with unilateral cerebral palsy.
This study was published in Developmental Medicine & Child Neurology. The researchers evaluated the feasibility and effectiveness of a home-based, action observation treatment (AOT) that encouraged child-to-child interaction to improve hand motor function in 20 children (average age 6 years, 7 months) with unilateral cerebral palsy.
