Abstract

The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of sensory integration therapy approach on fine motor skills in children of age 5 through 10 with spastic cerebral palsy. In this semi experimental study, 18 children through available sampling method were chosen and randomly divided into two groups of 9 members experimental and control. First, they were pretested with test of bruininks-oseretsky test of motor proficiency. Then experimental group of sensory integration practices for 5 weeks three times a week. During the execution of the program, the control group did their usual activities. After the end of the program, both groups were post tested and analyzed. Data analysis was performed using multivariate and ANOVA. Results showed sensory integration approach had a positive effect on fine motor skills (p<0/01). So according to the results of this research can be deduced sensory integration practices programs can fine motor skills in children with spastic cerebral palsy improve. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
