About

The main purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of music therapy on the upper extremity functions and quality of life of individuals with Cerebral Palsy (CP). The secondary aim is to investigate the effect of music therapy on the sensory functions of the upper extremity in individuals with CP. Adolescent individuals with hemiparetic CP will participate in this study, and the participants will experience music therapy, which is a scientific intervention approach. If music therapy has a positive effect on upper extremity functions, they will be more active in daily life and their quality of life will increase. In the light of these data to be presented, a contribution will be made to the evidence level of music therapy in the literature and to the content of SP upper extremity rehabilitation.
