Welcome to CPtherapy.

CPtherapy is a highly specialised, private occupational therapy service for young children with cerebral palsy located in Melbourne, Australia. We specifically focus on providing early intervention services for children with unilateral cerebral palsy (hemiplegia), aged 0 to 5 years. Our two occupational therapists, Brian Hoare BOT; PhD and Susan Greaves B.App.Sc (OT); PhD have over 40 years combined clinical experience in the treatment of children with cerebral palsy.

CPtherapy provides therapy services that are based on high-quality research evidence. Effective therapy for children with cerebral palsy is hard work and there is no “one size fits all” approach. CPtherapy adopts a range of treatment approaches including modified constraint-induced movement therapy, bimanual upper limb therapy, goal-directed training and upper limb strength training. Outcomes of all our programs are evaluated using objective measurement tools, designed specifically for children with cerebral palsy. Under the direction of your treating therapist it is a requirement that all children and families participate in a parent/caregiver led home program during active treatment programs.

If you are interested in accessing our services, please complete the contact form and we will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible. Please remember, CPtherapy is highly specialised and services are restricted to young children with a diagnosis of unilateral cerebral palsy (hemiplegia).
