Personal routines and self-care

Children are likely to be more autonomous and confident if they can wash, feed and toilet themselves independently.

Children with cerebral palsy can work towards self-care goals when a task-specific training approach is used, with appropriate aids and equipment if required. Self-care interventions may also focus on sleep quality and managing the changes a child will experience as they enter puberty.
