CONCLUSIONS: Optimizing engagement in interactive computer play-based motor interventions requires closer alignment with client-led values/goals; design of technologies and interventions that sustain intrinsic motivation; and feedback that informs/builds self-efficacy. Implications for rehabilitation The decision to prescribe an interactive computer play-based motor intervention should be guided by client-led goals and an informed understanding of the capacity of the interactive computer play-based intervention to meet individual client values/expectancies. Sustaining intrinsic motivation in interactive computer play-based...

CONCLUSIONS: It is important to understand the uniqueness of each home environment in order to enhance participation of children with cerebral palsy in home setting. IMPLICATIONS FOR REHABILITATION The child's relationships with family members, social demands of activities and attitudes and actions of others, as supportive factors, should be considered by professionals to facilitate home participation. There is the need to develop strategies to facilitate children's independence in order to optimize participation outcomes in home-based activities. Differences identified in this study may assist professionals in the design ...

CONCLUSIONS: Photographs and accompanying text were presented to local stakeholders and an action plan to increase physical activity for adolescents with CP was created. Perceived barriers included lack of inclusiveness, family isolation, and limited accessibility of equipment and resources. Facilitators included support services for families and adaptive sport leagues. Photovoice serves as a powerful tool to initiate change to promote physical activity among rural adolescents with CP. Implications for rehabilitation Adolescents with cerebral palsy living in rural areas face unique barriers to physical activity. Accessibil...

CONCLUSIONS: One year of COPCA and 1 year of typical infant physiotherapy in infants at high risk of CP resulted in similar neurodevelopmental outcomes. It is conceivable that combinations of active ingredients from different approaches are needed for effective early intervention. IMPLICATIONS FOR REHABILITATION For infants at very high risk of cerebral palsy, 1 year of intervention with the family-centred programme Coping with and Caring for infants with special needs resulted in similar infant outcome as 1 year of typical infant physiotherapy. Infant's neuromotor, cognitive, and behavioural outcome was not asso...

CONCLUSION: The young adults expressed that the Cognitive Orientation to daily Occupational Performance intervention, although sometimes challenging, was worth the effort because it provided them with an opportunity to master everyday-life problems by using meta-cognitive thinking, which enhanced their self-efficacy. Implications for rehabilitation The Cognitive Orientation to daily Occupational Performance Approach™ - was perceived to provide opportunities to master everyday-life problems by using meta-cognitive thinking. The Cognitive Orientation to daily Occupational Performance Approach boosted the persons feelin...

CONCLUSION: The Arabic ABILHAND-Kids demonstrated adequate evidence supporting its structural validity as a unidimensional measure along with evidence supporting its internal consistency, test-retest reliability and construct validity as a measure of manual ability in children with cerebral palsy. Implications for rehabilitation The Arabic ABILHAND-Kids is a reliable and valid measure of manual ability in children with cerebral palsy. The Arabic ABILHAND-Kids can be used to quantify manual ability in children with cerebral palsy in clinical practice and for research purposes. PMID: 31067144 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract PURPOSE: To determine childhood predictors of participation in domestic life and interpersonal relationships of young adults with cerebral palsy (CP). MATERIALS AND METHODS: This 13-year follow-up of an existing cohort (baseline age 9-13 years) included 67 young adults with CP (age 21-27 years). The Vineland adaptive behavior scales (VABS) and Life Habits questionnaire were used to assess attendance and difficulty in participation in domestic life and interpersonal relationships. Baseline factors were categorised according to the international classification of functioning, disability, ...

CONCLUSIONS: The reasons that limits the studies analyzed in this review were small sample sizes and insufficient heterogeneity of groups included. Because of the significance of proprioception on movement and motor performance, it should be included in the evaluation and treatment programs of individuals with Cerebral Palsy. Implications for rehabilitation It has been found that the various treatment methods applied appear to have a positive effect on proprioception with children and adults Cerebral Palsy. No treatment appears to be superior to the others. Treatment was found to be better as Gross Motor Function Classific...

Conclusions and implicationsThe results suggest physical activity during floor-play is not related to gross motor function or participation in non-ambulatory toddlers with cerebral palsy. Clinicians and researchers should independently measure physical activity, gross motor function, and participation.
