Thérapie motrice par contrainte induite et motivation de l'enfant : un enjeu de l'ergothérapeute

Abstract : Introduction: The Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT) based on the phenomenon of cortical reorganization, is a specific technique of hemiplegia rehabilitation. This method aims to immobilize the healthy limb to optimise the use of the injured one. Currently used in paediatrics, constraint induced movement therapy remains nevertheless constraining and can impact the child’s motivation. The aim of this study was to point out the means set up by occupational therapists to promote the motivation of children with an infantile hemiplegia in a constraint-induced movement therapy. Method: To answer the research question, a qualitative method was used. It relies on semi-structured interviews with three occupational therapists. Results: The use of fun activities, the importance of group and the occupational therapist's encouragement are components promoting in the motivation of the child. Conclusion: To promote the child's participation in constraint induced movement therapy, various means are to be developed by the occupational therapist to encourage the child's motivation.
