Cerebral palsy is a nonprogressive disorder of motion and posture due to brain insult or injury during the period of early brain growth, and the incidence has not reduced in spite of improvement in social, medical and economic status.

Vojta treatment is a recently developed method of C.P. treatment which can be applied earlier than the other traditional methods by early diagnosis.

We analysed the effect of treatment by motor quotient in 32 cerebral palsied who was treated continuously for over 8 months in accordance with the neuromotor type, severity, mentality, age of initial treatment, and the number of treatment per day.

The results were as follows,

1) Spastic type was higher in initial M.Q. but the effect of treatment was similar to other types.

2) Cerebral palsied with good mentality and of mild degree had noticeably higher M.Q. initially than that of poor mentality or more severe degree, but the effect was only slightly superior to the others.

3) The better was the effect of treatment when the earlier the initial treatment.

4) The effect of treatment was much better in cases treated over twice per day than the cases treated only once.
