Abstract

Date Presented 4/7/2016

Caregivers of children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy experience changing roles and relationships, positivity regarding their child’s future, and fear of the unknown while their child receives constraint-induced movement therapy treatment. This study explores how the treatment may affect a caregiver and the caregiver–child dynamic.
