Movement, mobility and function

For many people with cerebral palsy, 90% of their motor potential has been reached by the early teens.

Focus can change from therapies that develop movement and motor skills, to maintaining motor function. completing daily tasks, and managing energy. Assistive technology plays an important role here for many teenagers.

The best interventions to help teenagers with movement and mobility are ones that focus on their chosen goals. We encourage teenagers to set their own goals to make therapy more meaningful. This will increase their enjoyment and motivation to reach their goals. These goals should be specific, real-life tasks that are active, fun and enjoyable.
