     This Solomon-Four-Group study was conducted to determine the significant difference in the attitude of Occupational therapy interns towards the therapeutic stuck for assisting shoulder movement exercises among hemiplegic CVA patients, before and after the awareness lecture.

     Likert set of reliability tested questionnaires were given to sample size 40 OT interns. the respondents were randomly selected and designated into four groups.

     From the results, the OT intern in the control group showed a positive attitude while the experimental group revealed a very positive attitude. Indeed, there was a significant difference between both groups as verified by using a statistical test.

     The researchers recommend an extensive study on the effectiveness of the modality in a physical dysfunction setting. For the next researchers who are interested in our methodology, the Solomon-Four-Group utilized in this study may serve as their reference.
