dc.description.abstract Background: Cerebral palsy (CP) is quite familiar to medical communities as it impacts on normal engagement of activities. So it is important to know the problems that the child with CP faces and this can be known by a standardized assessment. Objective: The objectives of the study are to - Identify the level of occupational participation. - Identify the association among age, sex, types of CP and occupational participation. - Identify the common strengths and challenges of the child cerebral palsy. Study design: The study is conducted through cross sectional design among the participants who were selected according to the inclusion criteria. The Short Child Occupational Profile (SCOPE) is used to assess the occupational participation of 181 cerebral palsy child in the inpatient pediatric unit of CRP. The structured questionnaire was fulfilled by assessing the child through observation and information was also obtained from the carer. The part named referring reason was collected from the CRP‟s inpatient assessment form. Result: Results showed a significant association between age and occupational participation (p>0.05), there was no association between the sex and occupational participation (p<0.05), and no association among the types of cerebral palsy and occupational participation (p<0.05). In this study showing enjoyment or happiness when playing or doing something were the most common strengths (80.1%) of all participants and 79.6% of participants faced challenges with solving problems. Conclusion: Study results support the previous study of engagement or participating in daily activities of the child with CP. As the child with cerebral palsy have severe limitations in their motor activity this may be a possible cause for not being able to participating in occupation or activity. Age is another area which affected participation. en_US
