About

The goal of this clinical trial is to investigate the effects of home-based Action Observation Training (AOT) applied together with Functional Chewing Training (FuCT) on chewing and swallowing functions and feeding behavior in children with Cerebral Palsy (CP) who have chewing disorders. The main questions it aims to answer are: Is the application of Home-Based AOT together with FuCT effective on chewing function in children with CP? Is the application of Home-Based AOT together with FuCT effective on swallowing function in children with CP? Is the application of Home-Based AOT together with FuCT effective on feeding behavior in children with CP? Within the scope of the study, children with CP will be divided into two groups as the study group and the control group. All groups will implement FuCT routines, comprising 5 sets per day, 5 days a week, for 12 weeks. Additionally, the study group will be included in an AOT program, conducted via telerehabilitation, for 1 set per day, 3 days a week, for 12 weeks, with the guidance of a physiotherapist. All children with CP will be evaluated at the beginning, after 6 weeks, and at the end of the study.
