Especial care is a particular and unique care of children with CP which is done in the areas of occupational performance by caregivers (mostly mothers). There is a mutual lack of knowledge both the mothers and therapists to special care. This means they not only do not have the necessary knowledge about the special care, but actually they do not have experience in this field. Special care was seen as a missing link of handling, causing hardship, stress and increases the burden of care in caregivers. It seems, through educational programs for parents and therapists, with conducting training workshops and practical acquaintance of caring for children with CP can enhance information and their experience on the special care.
