Parent's perception of the impact of recreational therapy on their child's quality of life with cerebral palsy

Dao, Brittany
Abstract
There is a need for research centered around recreational therapy, cerebral palsy, and quality of life. This study focused on one parent's perceptions of their child's quality of life with spastic cerebral palsy before and after receiving recreational therapy treatment. The PedsQLTM Infant Scales were utilized for this study in a pretest/posttest case report. Data was collected from the participant at a health center in Stillwater, Oklahoma. The data collected determined that the parent did perceive an improvement in quality of life of their child with cerebral palsy after receiving recreational therapy treatment. There is minimal research in the specific areas of recreational therapy for cerebral palsy and the effect that recreational therapy has on a child's quality of life with cerebral palsy, however this study helps build the foundation for future studies.
