Abstract

An Interventional study was conducted to assess the effectiveness of oral motor stimulation on drooling among children with cerebral palsy at, Amrit centre for special needs and Women Volunteer Service (WVS) special school, Coimbatore. Pre experimental one group pre test post test design was used to conduct the study. A purposive sample of 25 children with cerebral palsy who have drooling were included in this study. Pre assessment was done by using drooling quotient scale for children with cerebral palsy. Oral motor stimulation was administered to the children by the researcher for a duration of twenty minutes daily for a period of 4 weeks to each child in a comfortable environment. The post test was done using the same tool at the end of the intervention. The obtained data were analyzed using paired ‘t’ test. It was identified that the mean drooling quotient before and after oral motor stimulation was 83.55 and 72.05 with a standard deviation of 4.46 and 7.41 respectively. The calculated ‘t’ value was 7.69. The result revealed that there was a significant reduction in drooling after the implementation of oral motor stimulation. Hence, it was concluded that oral motor stimulation was effective in reducing drooling among children with cerebral palsy.
