dc.description.abstractChildhood stroke is a stroke which occurs in children aged 28 days up to 18 years of age. It differs from adult stroke in many ways, through causes, diagnosis, comorbidities and recovery. Childhood stroke occurs in approximately 5 in every 100,000 children. Recovery of childhood stroke can differ from strokes occurring before 28 days and before birth. Hemiplegia is common after childhood stroke, this research proposal aims to investigate the various treatment approaches, interventions and approaches used to treat this by UK paediatric occupational therapists. Little is known about childhood stroke by both the public and healthcare workers. Evidence-based practice is also an important component to the practice of occupational therapists. The need to implement evidenced based practice is essential; however there are barriers that prevent effective integration of research and evidence into practice There are various treatment approaches, interventions and assessments used by paediatric occupational therapists, this literature review and research proposal aims to identify traditional and conventional and also new and emerging approaches to practice. This will be explored by the use of an online survey, which will gather data from paediatric occupational therapists in the UK.
