SINOPSIS

Dosing is an important component of effectiveness of treatment programs for children with cerebral palsy. Interventions that provide more time for practice have the potential for driving sustainable changes in both plasticity and participation. Regardless of type, the time per session, effort, and frequency of performance of an activity appear to be key factors when dosing for optimal treatment effectiveness. One way to increase engagement and frequency per week of a particular activity is by partnering with community centers, specialized and non-specialized fitness centers, or local physical therapy education programs. We need more information about effective doses of interventions that can be utilized in a multimodal community-based exercise program. In this paper, we review effective doses of whole body vibration, bicycling, active video gaming, body weight support treadmill training, and aquatics for children with cerebral palsy.
