The aim of the present study is to explain the correlation between sleep disorders and function in children with spastic cerebral palsy (4-12Y).
Materials & Methods
This cross-sectional study was carried out on 62 children with spastic CP (8.98±1.46Y) who were recruited from rehabilitation clinics of Tehran, Iran 2017. The Activities Scale for Kids, The Sleep Disturbance Scale for Children and the cerebral palsy Quality Of Life questionnaire for Children were utilized in this study. Data were analyzed by SPSS software (version 16)
The results showed that children with sleep disorder and arousal disorders have lower family health, lower quality of life and lower level of independence in their activities (0.05).
These results emphasize on necessity of more attention about sleep disorders and family health problems in children with cerebral palsy.
