Brief Summary:
This study evaluates CIMT(Constraint Induced Movement Therapy) in the treatment of physical activity performance and motor function of the weaker extremity in young children with cerebral palsy. Half of participants will receive CIMT while the other half will receive no treatment.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Hemiplegic Cerebral Palsy With Spasticity (Diagnosis) Other: Constraint Induced Movement Therapy Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) is a short-term, intensive treatment to promote functional arm and hand skills in people with hemiparesis. It usually involves constraint of the non-involved extremity and intensive movement practice of the weaker extremity.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: CIMT group
4 hours a day for 15days(dosage = 60hours)
Other: Constraint Induced Movement Therapy
Constraint-induced movement therapy (CIMT) is a high-dosage, efficacious, rehabilitation approach used for children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy
Other Name: CIMT

No Intervention: Control group

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Actigraph(physical activity performance) [ Time Frame: 6 days ]
    For the upper limb use assessment, participants wear two accelerometers (one on each wrist). To quantify the affected upper limb movement relative to the unaffected upper limb before and after the CIMT program, two other variables are computed: use ratio and magnitude ratio. The use ratio is the ratio of the active duration for the affected arm to that for the unaffected arm. The magnitude ratio quantifies the contribution of the affected upper limb to activity.

  2. Pediatric Motor Activity Log(PMAL) [ Time Frame: 30 minutes ]
    The Pediatric Motor Activity Log (PMAL) is a parent-report measure of the use, by children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy, of their affected upper limb in everyday activities. Each item is scored 0-5(0= Never used affected arm , 5= Used affected arm on almost every occasion)

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pediatric Evaluation of Disability Inventory(PEDI) [ Time Frame: 30 minutes ]
    The PEDI is a parental-report, or structured-interview, instrument used by pediatric physical therapists and other rehabilitation professionals to assess functional abilities of young children children

  2. Peabody Developmental Motor Scales-2(PDMS-2) [ Time Frame: 30 minutes ]
    The PDMS-2 consists of six subtests: Reflexes (for children from birth through 11 months), Stationary (ability to sustain control of body within its center of gravity), Locomotion (ability to move from one place to another), Object Manipulation (ability to manipulate balls for children 12 months and older), Grasping (ability to use hands), and Visual-Motor Integration (ability to use visual perpetual skills to perform complex eye-hand coordination tasks).

  3. Gross motor function measure(GMFM) [ Time Frame: 30 minutes ]
    The 88 items of the GMFM are measured by observation of the child and scored on a 4-point ordinal scale (0=does not initiate, 1=initiates <10% of activity, 2=partially completes 10% to <100% of activity, 3=completes activity). The items are weighted equally and grouped into 5 dimensions: (1) lying and rolling (17 items), (2) sitting (20 items), (3) crawling and kneeling (14 items), (4) standing (13 items), and (5) walking, running, jumping (24 items).

  4. Clinical Global Impression of improvement and severity(CGI-I, CGI-S) [ Time Frame: 20 minutes ]
    The CGI acomprises two companion one-item measures evaluating the following: (a) severity of psychopathology from 1 to 7 and (b) change from the initiation of treatment on a similar seven-point scale.

  5. Quality of Upper Extremity Skills Test(QUEST) [ Time Frame: 30 minutes ]
    The QUEST is a criterion-referenced measurement tool, developed to evaluate upper extremity quality of movement in children with CP aged from 18 months to 8 years
