For a variety of reasons, the definition and the clawification of cerebral palsy (CP) need to be reconsidered. Modern brain imaging techniques have shed new light on the nature of the underlying brain injury and studies on the neurobiology of and pathology associated with brain development have further explored etiologic mechanisms. It is now recognized that assessing the extent of activity restriction is part of CP evaluation and that people without activity restriction should not be included… Expand
The epidemiology of cerebral palsy: new perspectives from a Canadian registry.
TLDR
Cerebral palsy describes a group of permanent disorders of movement and posture, causing activity limitations, that are attributed to non-progressive disturbances that occurred in the developing fetal or infant brain. Expand
Classifying Cerebral Palsy: Are We Nearly There?
TLDR
Utilization of the GMFCS has increased rapidly over the past 7 years in the JPO but there is room for further improvement, and its validity, reliability, and clinical utility have been confirmed. Expand
Definition, Epidemiology, and Etiological Factors of Cerebral Palsy
TLDR
Cerebral palsy is a group of permanent disorders of the development of movement and posture, causing activity limitation, that are attributed to nonprogressive disturbances that occurred in the developing fetal or infant brain. Expand
Progressive course in cerebral palsy?

  • Developmental medicine and child neurology
  • 2007
TLDR
Estimates of maintenance of ambulation capacity in CP are presented based on questionnaire data obtained in 7550 children aged around 10 years and 5721 adults aged around 25 years identified from the same database, and it is suggested that more than 25% of children who walk at 10 years are expected to lose this ability by age 25. Expand
Intellectual disability in cerebral palsy: a multifaceted epidemiology
TLDR
A correlation has been found between the degree of impairment of non-verbal intelligence and the amount of white matter reduction in optic radiations and occipital lobes, suggesting that congenital damage to these areas may selectively and persistently affect visuospatial abilities. Expand
Cerebral Palsy: Current Opinions on Definition, Epidemiology, Risk Factors, Classification and Treatment Options
TLDR
Current views on definitions, risk factors, diagnostics and treatment of CP as well as comorbid problems, eg, drug-resistant epilepsy are presented. Expand
Early Diagnosis and Classification of Cerebral Palsy: An Historical Perspective and Barriers to an Early Diagnosis
TLDR
Diagnosis and classification are different, involving different instruments, and are more accurately conducted separately in infants, whereas they are fundamentally interconnected in older children and inform therapeutic decisions. Expand
Cerebral palsy: An overview and the role of a paediatric neurologist in the evaluation of children with complex needs for cochlear implant
Abstract Cerebral palsy (CP) is primarily a non-progressive disorder of movement and posture affecting the developing brain, but many children with CP have other impairments which may affect theirExpand
Relationship between brain structure and Cerebral Visual Impairment in children with Cerebral Palsy: A systematic review.
TLDR
The overall level of evidence correlating different patterns of CVI and CP (based on GMFCS, motor type and distribution) and MRI was low and further studies utilising advances in MRI are needed to understand brain reorganisation and patterns ofCVI and suggest rehabilitation therapy inclusive of vision. Expand
The relationship between neuroimaging and motor outcome in children with cerebral palsy: A systematic review - Part A. Structural imaging.
TLDR
The relationship between brain structure and motor outcome needs to be further elucidated in a representative cohort of children with CP, using a more standardized MRI classification system. Expand

Practice Parameter: Diagnostic assessment of the child with cerebral palsy
TLDR
Neuroimaging results in children with CP are commonly abnormal and may help determine the etiology, and screening for associated conditions is warranted as part of the initial evaluation. Expand

TLDR
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
Classification and definition of disorders causing hypertonia in childhood.
TLDR
The purpose of the workshop and this article are to define the terms "spasticity," "dystonia," and "rigidity" as they are used to describe clinical features of hypertonia in children to allow differentiation of clinical features even when more than 1 is present simultaneously. Expand
Cerebral Palsy Epidemiology: Where are We Now and Where are We Going?
OVER the past decade, regular international meetings devoted to the state of the art in the epidemiology of cerebral palsy have been held: in California in 1987, in Cambridge in 1989 and in Brioni,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.

Testing of the spinal alignment and range of motion measure: a discriminative measure of posture and flexibility for children with cerebral palsy.
TLDR
The SAROMM has sufficient reliability and validity for use with children with CP in clinical and research settings by rehabilitation therapists and is supported by a significant contribution of GMFCS level and age to the SAROMm score. Expand
