Background and Aim: Oral feeding difficulties are common in children with cerebral palsy. Early oral motor interventions may improve oral feeding skills in these children. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of intervention duration of oral motor stimulation on feeding skills in spastic cerebral palsy.

  

Materials and Methods: Twelve children with spastic cerebral palsy 2-7 years aged were participated into two groups A and B. Children in the group A received oral-motor stimulation for 12 session(3 days per week) and group B received stimulation program for 24 session(3 days per week).Feeding skills was assessed using Oral Motor Assessment Scale (OMAS). Data were analyzed using Friedman and Mann-Whitney tests.

  

Results : The results of the study revealed a significant improvement in feeding skills for both groups. The B group had significantly advanced in mouth closure, lip closure on utensil and sucking straw than children in group A (P<0.05). The difference between two group in control of food during deglutition, mastication and control of liquid during deglutition was not significant (P>0.05).There was difference in the total score of feeding skills was not significant between the two groups (P>0.05).

  

Conclusion: Oral-motor intervention might be improved feeding performance in children with cerebral palsy but continuation (increased duration) of intervention improved specific components of feeding behaviors.
