and their caregivers both before the intervention and again three months after its completion. Before the intensive therapy, all thirty-one caregivers completed the assessment. After three months, the KIDSCREEN domains of physical well-being (proxy and self-reports; p= 0.01) and school environment (self-report; p= 0.006) had increased significantly, and COPM domains showed a statistically significant increase for all participants (p=0.000). Based on the results from the KIDSCREEN and COPM assessments, all participants demonstrated improvements after three months. Therefore, the intensive therapy approach may be an appropriate intervention to improve the quality of life and levels of self-care of children and adolescents with disabilities. However, as there are many aspects that affect QOL, it may be beneficial to include a control group in a future study.
