Abstract

BACKGROUND: Cerebral Palsy is a movement impairment and organ condition, which is caused by trauma or malfunction of brain regions responsible for motor control. Cerebral palsy children suffer difficulty in motor function (coordination and control). It is found that 10% of the global population has some form of disability from different causes; in India, it is 3.8% of the population. Nearly 15-20% of physically disabled children are affected by Cerebral Palsy. In India, the estimated incidence is around 3/1000 live births. Cerebral palsy is the most common motor disability in childhood. METHODOLOGY: 30 subjects were selected for this study. Subjects were divided into 2 groups. Group A consisting of 15 subjects and Group B Consisting of 15 subjects. Subjects in group A receives conventional therapy and group B receives conductive education. Both the group received intervention for 45 minutes per session, 5 days in a week for 1 month. RESULT: The group A pre-test mean score value of functional activity was 148.20 and post-test mean score value of functional activity was 163.33. The group B pre-test mean score value of functional activity was 148.00 and post-test mean score value of functional activity was 172.53. CONCLUSION: The study concluded that there was statistical improvement in gross motor function after the application of conductive educational therapy for cerebral palsy subjects.
