Helping Hands

This program is for children with a diagnosis of cerebral palsy with hemiplegia. Constraint Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT) is used to help children participate in a variety of activities using their affected hand while wearing a split on their other hand. Parent or caregiver involvement is essential to   this program.    As part of the program, your child will attend a pre-group assessment.
 
Your child should:
  • be receiving occupational therapy or physiotherapy services at ErinoakKids
  • attend this program on the recommendation of his/her therapist
  • have hemiplegia affecting an arm and hand, with some use of the affected hand
  • have the ability to follow directions and participate in a group setting, and
  • be seizure free for at least six months.
