This activity is for children with a diagnosis of cerebral palsy with hemiplegia. Constraint Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT) is used to help children with impaired hand and arm function participate in a variety of activities using their affected hand and arm. The child’s unaffected arm is restrained by a splint. A parent or caregiver must attend some of the sessions and be willing to ensure the child continues to wear the splint for the prescribed period of time at home. Your child will need to attend a pregroup assessment.
Your child should:
be receiving occupational therapy or physiotherapy services at ErinoakKids
be a client whose therapist recommends this service
have hemiplegia affecting an arm and hand, but have some use of the limb
have the ability to follow directions and participate in a group setting, and
be seizure free for at least six months
