Un pour tous, tous pour un. Prendre en charge les enfants dyspraxiques en ergothérapie

Abstract : In France, between 5% and 7% children live with dyspraxia. Dyspraxia is a motor coordination disorder which can generate scholar learning and behavioural disabilities, and reduces social participation. The difficulties and suffering endured by those children and their parents constitute a major challenge for public health-care. Occupational therapist’s goal is to enable children to gain the independence and autonomy that are needed in everyday life. But this care is particular : a tripartite therapeutic relationship needs to be built. The aim of this study is to determine whether parents participation in occupational therapy session influences social participation of children with this disorder. To this end, survey was sent by interviews with three children, their parent (three mothers) and their occupational therapists (three) working in private practice. Two out of three children and three out of three parents think that parents participation in therapy session is not beneficial to them. Two out of three OTs said that they do not include parents in therapy session. One OT said that occasional participation is beneficial for dyspraxic children learnings. The results show that parents participation in therapy session does not always contribute to the learning of gestures of daily living for children with dyspraxia : Therefore, results suggest that parents participation is a tool to relay therapeutic work at home, but parents participation must be occasional because the children behaviour can be negatively influence.
