Abstract
ABSTRACT
AIM: The aim was to investigate the effects of the goal directed therapy (GDT) on the motor functions, daily living activities of children with CP.
METHOD: 26 children with spastic CP, 14 males (53.8%) and 12 females (46.2%) ,mean age 9.5 ▒ 3.2 years were included. GMFCS levels were, I in 42.3%, II in 3.8% level, III in 15.4%, IV in 11.5% and V in 26.9%. The children were included into the GDT applied 3 sessions for 12 weeks.
RESULTS: Positive developments after therapy were identified in the gross motor functions of the children (p= .00), in the self-care, transfer, and locomotion subscales of the independence levels measured with WeeFIM (p

Key words: Cerebral palsy, goal directed therapy, gross motor development, health related quality of life, functional status
