Parental Views Regarding Seating and Participation for Young Children with Cerebral Palsy
Bolas, Jennifer; Boyle, Paul
Journal of Occupational Therapy, Schools & Early Intervention, v10 n3 p254-265 2017
The aim of this article was to explore the views of parents regarding seating for children with cerebral palsy. Two interviews with parents were conducted. These were transcribed verbatim and thematic analysis was conducted. This small study outlines three themes: the importance of seating, seating and participation, and the parental role in supporting participation. The parents in this study viewed seating as beneficial to support participation by enhancing energy conservation and promoting upper limb use. Barriers may relate to equipment provision and poor community access and parents may perceive themselves to play a role in overcoming barriers by adopting an advocacy role.
