Dr Sue Greaves

Sue has been a paediatric Occupational Therapist for over 40 years, with a primary clinical focus on children with cerebral palsy. She is passionate about early intervention, especially assessment and management of the upper limb in children with unilateral cerebral palsy (hemiplegia). For her PhD research Sue developed a test called the Mini-Assisting Hand Assessment (Mini-AHA) that evaluates how well young children aged 8-18 months with unilateral CP use their affected upper limb during bimanual play. Sue has been a chief investigator in large clinical trials evaluating interventions for very young children with cerebral palsy and has presented her findings from her research at both national and international conferences, as well as in journal articles and book chapters.  Sue currently is working in private practice for CPTherapy (part of the Cerebral Palsy Group) as well as teaching the reliable use of the Mini-AHA and Hand Assessment for Infants (HAI) to therapists worldwide.
