CHAMP Project (Child Hand Arm Movement Project)


The CHAMP Study—a multisite clinical trial funded by the National Institutes of Health—compares the efficacy of alternative therapies for young children with unilateral spastic cerebral palsy, also known as hemiparetic cerebral palsy.

Children who meet study eligibility criteria will participate at one of the three clinical sites— Roanoke, Virginia; Charlottesville, Virginia; and Columbus, Ohio. After enrollment children will be randomly assigned to one of the 5 alternative therapy. All of which will receive an intensive rehabilitation treatment designed to promote functional skills of the child's weaker arm and hand. Participation in the study includes assessment of each child prior to treatment, close monitoring of the child’s progress during treatment, and post-treatment evaluation at the end of therapy, as well as at 6 and 12 months later.

There is no cost associated with therapy services, but families who live outside of the treatment cities will be responsible for travel related expenses associated with assessments and the 4-week treatment period.
