The purpose of this study is to find the relevance of the items within a self-made
assessment scale, called Assessment Scale for Cerebral Palsy (ASCP), built to
observe the interactive response of a small group of people with severe
Cerebral Palsy Therapy in a Music Therapy treatment.
In order to achieve that goal, different assessment scales in Music Therapy with
Cerebral Palsy (CP) and other pathologies with similar limitations have been
reviewed, and their items have been compared with those of ASCP scale.
The qualitative data analysis used provided some common and significant items
(17/32) to observe changes in the interactive response in CP. There is also a
reflection on the relevance or not of others, initially considered in ASCP scale,
and potential perspectives to expand its relevance.
