Providing effective, goal-directed upper limb therapy for young children with cerebral palsy is much more than just “playing with toys”.
In order to acquire new skills and learn, activities or toys must be carefully matched to the ability level and age of each individual child.
The toys must be challenging but not too hard. They must also be motivating and fun to provide lots of opportunities for repetitive practice and learning.
Features of the toy need to be carefully considered as each toy will provoke or encourage specific actions. The size, shape and texture will also impact on the difficulty of the task and actions provoked.
Getting this right can be a difficult task for both therapists and parents.
Using extensive research and clinical knowledge, the CPtoys™ app designed specifically for therapists and families, does the matching for you.
Along with a child’s individual goals, therapists and parents simply enter a few key variables and CPtoys™ provides a highly specific, individualised and targeted upper limb therapy program for children with cerebral palsy.
Enter as many children or goals as you like.
