A report: the definition and classification of cerebral palsy April 2006
TLDR
Suggestions were made about the content of a revised definition and classification of CP that would meet the needs of clinicians, investigators, health officials, families and the public and would provide a common language for improved communication. Expand
Content validity of the expanded and revised Gross Motor Function Classification System
TLDR
The aim of this study was to validate the expanded and revised Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS‐E&R) for children and youth with cerebral palsy using group consensus methods, and the results provide evidence of content validity of the GMFCS' E&R. Expand
THE GROSS MOTOR FUNCTION MEASURE: A MEANS TO EVALUATE THE EFFECTS OF PHYSICAL THERAPY
TLDR
Correlations between scores for change on this measure and the judgments of change by parents, therapists and ‘blind’ evaluators supported the hypothesis that the instrument would be responsive to both negative and positive changes. 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
Proposed definition and classification of cerebral palsy, April 2005.
TLDR
A revised definition and classification of cerebral palsy is presented to meet the needs of clinicians, investigators, and health officials, and provide a common language for improved communication. 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
Patterns of participation in recreational and leisure activities among children with complex physical disabilities
  • M. Law, G. King, +5 authors S. Hanna

  • Developmental medicine and child neurology
  • 1 May 2006
TLDR
Findings provide a foundation for an improved understanding of the participation of children with physical disabilities, which can assist families and service providers in planning activities that fit with their child's preferences and ensure active participation. Expand
Developing and validating the Communication Function Classification System for individuals with cerebral palsy
TLDR
The content validity, interrater reliability, and test–retest reliability of the CFCS for children with CP are reported. 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
