Hsu, "Taiwanese parents' attitudes toward play for their children with cerebral palsy," 2002
Wei-Lun Hsu, M.A.
The purposes of this study were to investigate Taiwanese parents' attitudes toward play for their children with cerebral palsy, and to explore the reasons behind their attitudes in relation to the significance of play for their cerebral-palsied children. An interview designed by the researcher was used as the instrument to investigate the research questions.
A total of 45 Taiwanese parents who had preschool-aged children with cerebral palsy living in 3 urban cities in Taiwan participated in this study. Results show that 43 participants stated that they believed play is important for their children with cerebral palsy. When asked what it was like when they played at home with their children with cerebral palsy, 29 parents shared stories that fell into 4 categories relating to purpose and content of play: amusement, physical activity, skill development, and social pretend play.
