Effect of Motor-Rehabilitation Training Programme for Children with Cerebral Palsy

Ayed H. Ziadat

The objective of this study was to determine the impact of implementing a sport-training programme to improve motor-rehabilitation skills in children with cerebral palsy. Such improvements became evident on the gross and fine muscular motions due to the implemented motor-rehabilitation-training programme. The sport-training programmeme used a variety of motional tests on children 8-12 years of age diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Four males and four females with mild spasticity participated in the programme. The sport-training programme aimed to improve coordination, accuracy, flexibility, neuro-muscular coordination, ability to balance and also the visual/optic-motor coordination including motor awareness among the chosen group of children. Motor experiments were conducted, improvements due to the programme reached acceptable and adequate results as true indicators. Statistical analyses such as the t-test and Wilcoxon test for two-related samples before t and after were applied on the results of the training sport-programme. The results showed some differences in the average of pre and aft-measurements in the general motor skills experiments. Differences were also found in the average of pre and aft-measurement in the fine motor skills for the aft-measurements. The difference was within (α≤0.05).
