Abstract
The aim of this study is to evaluate the association between gross motor function classification system levels and implementation of home programs in children with cerebral palsy. Material-Method: This study is a cross-sectional study. The study group consists of 247 cerebral palsy patients who referred to rehabilitation centers and who agreed to participate in the study and their relatives. Gross Motor Function Classification System was used to find out the severity of cerebral palsy. The state of implementing home program was questioned through the parents of the children within the rehabilitation program. 51.6% of the children in the study were male, while 48.4% were female. Average age of the participants was 9.5±0.5 years (min.:0, max.:21). When the reasons for cerebral palsy were examined, 17.5% were found to be prenatal, 54.2% were found to be natal and 27.3% were found to be postnatal. Distribution of the children in terms of Gross Motor Function Classification System levels was found as 4.9% in level 1, as 21.9% in level 2, 34.4% in level 3, 25.1% in level 4, and 13.8% in level 5. Average age of the participant parents was found as 36.4±12.4 years (min.:18, max.:73). 93.8% of the parents were mothers, while 6.2% were fathers. Home program given by physiotherapist was applied to only 35.6% of the children by the parent. In this study, statistically significant difference was found between Gross Motor Function Classification System levels and application of home programs (p
