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.

Did you know that a great way to “read” a book together is not reading the words at all? The pictures in a book can tell a story all on their own and your child will enjoy looking at them and talking about them with you.
