Abstract or Summary
  • Cerebral palsy is a permanent neurodevelopmental disorder that affects physical activity level as well as perception and cognition and is often accompanied by secondary disorders (Rosenbaum, 2006). In order to gain the most health benefits, research shows that meeting the physical activity requirements of strength and cardiorespiratory training should be combined with a focus on decreasing sedentary activity as well (Verschuren et al., 2014). As alternative therapies such as swimming and horseback riding can provide additional incentive for a child to follow a repetitive therapy routine, it is thought that therapy with a family dog could provide similar motivation (Bertoti, 1988). Since a child’s ability to perform normal activity affects their ability to socialize, a lifestyle with regular physical activity may increase overall quality of life for children with cerebral palsy (Neves dos Santos, 2013). The purpose of this exploratory study was to examine the effect of an exercise-based physical activity program with a family dog on gross motor skills of children with cerebral palsy.
