Development and reliability of a system to classify gross motor function in children with cerebral palsy
TLDR
A five‐level classification system analogous to the staging and grading systems used in medicine, which has application for clinical practice, research, teaching, and administration is developed. Expand
Validation of a model of gross motor function for children with cerebral palsy.
TLDR
Logistic regression, used to estimate the probability that children with CP are able to achieve gross motor milestones based on their GMFM total scores, suggests that distinctions between GMFCS levels are clinically meaningful. Expand
The Gross Motor Function Classification System for Cerebral Palsy: a study of reliability and stability over time
TLDR
The GMFCS can validly predict motor function for children with CP and the results are discussed in terms of their implications for clinical practice and future research. Expand
Caregiving process and caregiver burden: Conceptual models to guide research and practice
TLDR
Integration of these models used to describe the caregiving process from two diverse fields, pediatrics and geriatrics, into one comprehensive model suitable for this population of children with disabilities and their caregivers is proposed. Expand
Prognosis for gross motor function in cerebral palsy: creation of motor development curves.
TLDR
Evidence-based prognostication about gross motor progress in children with cerebral palsy is now possible, providing parents and clinicians with a means to plan interventions and to judge progress over time. Expand
The Health and Well-Being of Caregivers of Children With Cerebral Palsy
TLDR
The primary objective of the current study was to examine, within a single theory-based multidimensional model, the determinants of physical and psychological health of adult caregivers of children with CP. Expand
Incidence of acquired demyelination of the CNS in Canadian children
TLDR
The incidence of pediatric acquired demyelinating syndromes (ADS) is 0.9 per 100,000 Canadian children, and ADS presentations are influenced by age. Expand
Limb distribution, motor impairment, and functional classification of cerebral palsy.
TLDR
An analysis of function (GMFCS) by impairment (limb distribution) indicates that the latter clinical characteristic does not add prognostic value over GMFCS, and the value of these subgroups as an indicator of mobility is limited in comparison with the classification of severity with the GM FCS. Expand
Epidemiology and Outcomes of Arterial Ischemic Stroke in Children: The Canadian Pediatric Ischemic Stroke Registry.
TLDR
This national data set provides a population-based disease incidence rate and demonstrates the protective effect of antithrombotic treatment in older children, and frequent long-term emerging deficits in neonates and in children with cardiac disorders. Expand
Increasing Prevalence of Cerebral Palsy Among Very Preterm Infants: A Population-Based Study
TLDR
Cerebral palsy has increased substantially among very preterm infants in association with and possibly as a consequence of large declines in infant mortality. Expand
