Pediatric stroke survivors have a wide range of abilities and disabilities.  Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy are often utilized to help increase range of motion and use of muscles that may be spastic or tight.  Children may need to find adaptive ways to deal with the skills of daily living.  Classrooms and school curriculum may need adaptations as well.  

These issues and more are explored in detail at the Children's Hemiplegia and Stroke Association website.
