Sarah is a five year old girl diagnosed with congenital hemiplegia from cerebral palsy. Her right side is affected, and she has no intellectual disabilities. While her parents want her to start first grade in the fall, they are worried about her ability to do well in the classroom because she is right handed. As her occupational therapist, you are interested in whether pediatricconstraint induced movement therapy (pCIMT) or bimanual training (BIT) would be a more effective treatment plan for Sarah.
