Occupational therapy helps people develop or recover the skills needed to lead independent, satisfying lives. Rather, it refers to the everyday activities that give life meaning. For a child, these meaningful activities include playing and learning.
For children with cerebral palsy , occupational therapy can help with muscle and joint coordination issues — issues that can make everyday tasks difficult. Some of these tasks include eating, brushing teeth and bathing. Occupational therapy can help to improve physical, cognitive and social abilities, as well as fine motor skills and posture.
This therapy can also help address difficulties with processing sensory information. By optimizing upper body function and improving the coordination of small muscles, occupational therapy can help children with CP master the basic activities of daily living.
Parents and caregivers spend a lot of time helping children with cerebral palsy perform basic day-to-day activities. As the child begins to see the benefits of occupational therapy, the parents and caregivers do, too. For parents and caregivers , occupational therapy helps by:.
Occupational therapy can help with the following issues related to each type of CP:. As with physical therapy and speech therapy , occupational therapy is different for every child with cerebral palsy. Most children with cerebral palsy need to be reevaluated every six to nine months. After these evaluations, the occupational therapist will tweak the treatment plan accordingly based on progress and change.
Occupational therapy involves using functional activities to progressively improve functional performance. Occupational therapists use specific techniques to help children reach their goals, including:.
Many different tools and assistive devices are used in occupational therapy. Equipment can range from common household items to high-tech assistive technologies. Occupational therapy helps people of all ages. Occupational therapists are licensed healthcare professionals. Finding an occupational therapist who has experience working with cerebral palsy patients is very important to ensure your child gets the best treatment possible.
Occupational, physical and speech therapists often work together to create comprehensive treatment plans. If your child is seeing a physical or speech therapist, they may be able to connect you with an occupational therapist.

Occupational Therapy for Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy CP is a group of permanent movement disorders that appear in early childhood. Cerebral palsy is caused by abnormal development or damage to the parts of the brain that control movement, balance, and posture. CP is partly preventable through immunization of the mother and efforts to prevent head injuries in children such as through improved safety. Cerebral palsy is the most common movement disorder in children. Cerebral palsy is defined as "a group of permanent disorders of the development of movement and posture, causing activity limitation, that are attributed to non-progressive disturbances that occurred in the developing fetal or infant brain.

This Research Topic will feature a collection of articles that focus on the neurologic correlates of motor function in cerebral palsy including implications for targeted treatment. Cerebral palsy CP describes a heterogeneous group of permanent motor-impairment disorders typically diagnosed by neuroimaging, Cerebral palsy CP describes a heterogeneous group of permanent motor-impairment disorders typically diagnosed by neuroimaging, the presence of abnormal muscle tone or posture, delay in reaching motor milestones, or the presence of gait abnormalities in young children. The underlying etiology or pathogenesis is often a non-progressive lesion in the periventricular white matter of the developing fetal or infant brain. Neuroimaging plays a crucial role in the diagnosis of CP, the understanding of underlying neuropathology, as well as the monitoring of the efficacy of targeted treatment.
CP is the most common motor disability in childhood. Cerebral means having to do with the brain. Palsy means weakness or problems with using the muscles.
Diagnosis of neuromuscular disorders in young children is often delayed for years after symptoms emerge, resulting in missed opportunities for therapy and genetic counseling. Identification of the weak child begins with careful attention to caregiver concerns and developmental surveillance at well-child visits. Family and medical histories can differentiate inherited from acquired causes of weakness. Serum creatine kinase levels should always be measured in children exhibiting neuromuscular weakness. Referrals to early intervention programs should not be postponed pending definitive diagnosis. If motor delay does not improve with early intervention, referral to a pediatric neurologist for diagnostic assessment is recommended.
Atlas of Genetic Diagnosis and Counseling pp Cite as. Cerebral palsy CP is currently considered as a clinically defined symptom complex applied to individuals with a static, nonprogressive motor impairment of early onset that is cerebral in origin. It describes a group of motor impairment syndromes secondary to genetic and acquired disorders of the developing brain.

Со своего места Сьюзан могла видеть всю комнату, а также сквозь стекло одностороннего обзора ТРАНСТЕКСТ, возвышавшийся в самом центре шифровалки. Сьюзан посмотрела на часы. Она ждет уже целый час. Очевидно, Анонимная рассылка Америки не слишком торопится пересылать почту Северной Дакоты. Сьюзан тяжело вздохнула. Несмотря на все попытки забыть утренний разговор с Дэвидом, он никак не выходил у нее из головы. Она понимала, что говорила с ним слишком сурово, и молила Бога, чтобы в Испании у него все прошло хорошо.
Никто не должен знать о существовании кольца. Может быть, стоит побродить по Триане, кварталу развлечений, и поискать там эту рыжую девицу. Или же обойти все рестораны - вдруг этот тучный немец окажется. Но и то и другое вряд ли к чему-то приведет.
Все дело в алгоритме, сочинить который оказалось не под силу нашим лучшим криптографам! - Стратмор стукнул кулаком по столу. Сьюзан окаменела. Она не произнесла ни слова. За десять лет их знакомства Стратмор выходил из себя всего несколько раз, и этого ни разу не произошло в разговоре с. В течение нескольких секунд ни он, ни она не произнесли ни слова.
Сьюзан также сообщила, что интерес к криптографии появился у нее еще в школе, в старших классах. Президент компьютерного клуба, верзила из восьмого класса Фрэнк Гут-манн, написал ей любовные стихи и зашифровал их, подставив вместо букв цифры. Сьюзан упрашивала его сказать, о чем в них говорилось, но он, кокетничая, отказывался.
