  • 1 December 2000
A network of CP surveys and registers was formed in 14 centres in eight countries across Europe to standardize the definition of CP, inclusion/exclusion criteria, classification, and description of children with CP, and a basis for services planning among European countries. Expand
Autism and associated medical disorders in a French epidemiological survey.
In the combined sample of 328 children with autism, the level and pattern of medical correlates were comparable, with tuberous sclerosis having a consistently strong association with autism. Expand
Pre‐, peri‐ and neonatal risk factors for autism
Despite evidence for the association of some pre‐, peri‐ and neonatal risk factors associated with PDD, it remains unclear whether these risks are causal or play a secondary role in shaping clinical expression in individuals with genetic vulnerability. Expand
Cerebral palsy update
A common language on CP has been developed for the European registers by the SCPE working group and the common database allows prevalence analyses on a larger basis, and the outcome with respect to CP in the group of extremely LBW or immature infants remains a matter of specific concern, as prevalence seems to be rather stable on a high level.

Trends in cerebral palsy among infants of very low birthweight (<1500 g) or born prematurely (<32 weeks) in 16 European centres: a database study
Evidence is provided that the prevalence of cerebral palsy in children of birthweight less than 1500 g has fallen, which has important implications for parents, health services, and society. Expand
Decreasing prevalence in cerebral palsy: a multi‐site European population‐based study, 1980 to 2003
To monitor the trends in prevalence of cerebral palsy by birthweight in Europe, 1980 to 2003, data is collected on children born in Europe between 1980 and 2003. Expand
Dyskinetic cerebral palsy in Europe: trends in prevalence and severity
The prevalence of dyskinetic cerebral palsy appears to have increased in children with a normal birth weight, and most children have a severe motor impairment and several accompanying impairments. Expand
Probability of Walking in Children With Cerebral Palsy in Europe
Walking ability in children with cerebral palsy from the Surveillance of Cerebral Palsy in Europe common database through 21 years correlated significantly with walking ability and, thus, the walking ability can be an indicator of total disability load. Expand
