What is it about?

This study compares how children with cerebral palsy (CP) and those with typical development (TD) participate in activities at home and in the community. Parents' perspectives were crucial, revealing that children with CP have lower overall participation, especially in terms of the variety and involvement in activities. Interestingly, the frequency of participation was similar between both groups. Parents expressed a desire for more diverse and frequent activities, emphasizing the need for a broader range of participation for children with CP.

Why is it important?

This research enhances our understanding of children with cerebral palsy's participation, highlighting differences in satisfaction across various settings. By emphasizing the importance of diverse and frequent activities, it contributes valuable insights for developing more inclusive strategies and support for children with CP.


This study uncovered some aspects of children's participation in different settings. I believe these findings will guide efforts to create more inclusive environments and improve the overall well-being of children with cerebral palsy.
