    Abstract

    Objective: Tactile sensory impairments in children with cerebral palsy (CP) have been known since the matter was first raised in 1952 [1]. Recent research continues to highlight the issue for this population [2]. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of tactile sensory impairments in the hands of children with all types of CP living in South Australia (SA), as this has not been investigated before.
