Brief description Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common physical disability (1 in 500) with life-long impact. The economic burden is AUS$1.47 billion/yr. Children have limitations in function which impacts daily activities and participation. Deficits in visual perception and learning have an impact on vocational aspirations. This program will test novel interventions (Action Observation training, constraint induced movement therapy, multi-modal web training) measuring broad outcomes and mechanisms with Advanced Brain Imaging.
