Introduction: Introduction: Sleep plays an important role in children’s growth and development. Since sleep disturbance is a common complaint in children with cerebral palsy, the present study was conducted to investigate the effectiveness of Dosaho on sleep quality in children with cerebral palsy with the age range of 4 to 12.

Methods: The present research is a semi-experimental study with a pretest-posttest design and a control group. The population of the study consisted of all children with cerebral palsy in Yazd. 30 male patients were selected using convenience sampling method and divided into the experimental and control groups. Before the beginning of the treatment, parents filled the quality of sleep questionnaire and at the end of the treatment period in the post-test phase the same assessment was filled out again. The treatment period in the experimental group was 12 sessions (three sessions a week and each session 50 minutes). Also the statistical analysis used in this study included descriptive and inferential studies.

Results: results obtained from the analysis of covariance showed that psychological rehabilitation of children with cerebral palsy improves the quality of sleep. The sleep quality scores before and after the intervention were 7.74±19.35 and 7.0±13.64 respectively, indicating a significant difference (p=0.005).

Conclusion: since the outbreak of cerebral palsy is raising and results in a wider set of symptoms, in the future, patients may have an increased need for rehabilitation. Dohsa-hou, as a complementary psychological rehabilitation approach, is an effective treatment to improve the quality of sleep of these patients.
