It is an experimental design of an only one case study, where a, 65 years old, slightly to the right, spastic hemiparetic female patient, with a brachial predomination due to an 84 month ischemic stroke, as well as a good cognitive capacity, was selected. The intervention protocol consisted of 15 one hour sessions, for 3 times a week, where mirror therapy was applied associated with the shaping protocol and task performance time was measured. The assessment instruments were: Motor Activity Log (MAL) scale and Fugl Meyer Motor Function Assessment (FMMF). The Wilcoxon statistical test was used to compare data. Results. There was a statistical difference for the MAL scale for the movement quantity and quality items (p=0,00).There was no statistical difference for the FMMF (p=0,06). There was improvement in the functional task performance time. Conclusion. It was concluded that mirror therapy brought positive effects on the stroke patient's motor function.
