Background: Cerebral Palsy has various structural and functional impairments which can lead to inability to walk, move independently which impairs their overall growth and development physiotherapy treatment in these subjects is a routine practice. Its applicability and outcomes is still an upcoming research area. This treatment has a longer duration of application for better outcomes. It is a big challenge for parents to do so due to many reasons. The impact of physiotherapy should be found out for all the age groups irrespective of their pathology and presentations. This study is an effort to do so.

Objective:

1. To study the types of cerebral palsy.

2. To assess the children with cerebral palsy.

3. To study the impact of physiotherapy on levels of gross motor function in children with cerebral palsy.

Method: Ethical Clearance was obtained from the Institutional ethical committee. 64 cerebral palsy children were selected aged between 6 months to 5 years divided in 3 groups according to their age both girls and boys were selected. They were assessed using Gross Motor Function Classification System scale which was recorded for a duration of 3 months. According to which conclusion was derived with appropriate statistical method.

Result: Group A shows maximum in level IV,Group B shows maximum in level I and II and Group C shows maximum in level III.

Conclusion: We found that level of Gross Motor Function was improved in the age group of 2 to 4 years and above when compared with age below 2 years after receiving physiotherapy treatment.
