Intervention in form of Conventional & Bilateral arm training were given for 5 Days per week for four weeks. Upper extremity function test was evaluated by Fugl Meyer Assessment, Motor activity log scale and action research arm test pre- & post treatment. Relationship and responsiveness of all clinical test were performed by Wilcoxon signed ranks test and Mann-Whitney test respectively. Result: All correlations were significant at 95 % C. I. at baseline as well as four-week time. There is increasing bilateral arm training function on upper limb while comparing to conventional therapy in four-week protocol.
