To determine efficacy of pediatric constraint-induced therapy, 20 children with congenital hemiparesis (age, 2 to 6 years) were randomly assigned to receive the treatment or usual and customary care. Controls crossed over to constraint-induced therapy after 6 months. Children receiving the therapy first exhibited emergence of more new classes of motor patterns and skills (e.g., crawling, thumb-forefinger prehension; 6.4 vs. .02, P < .0001, effect size d = 1.3,), and demonstrated significant gain...
