BACKGROUND Although behavioural problems are frequent in children with Cerebral Palsy (CP), the exact nature of these difficulties and their relationship with intrinsic or extrinsic factors are just beginning to be explored. AIM To describe and characterize behavioural problems in children with CP and to determine the nature of any relationships with child and family characteristics. METHODS In this cross-sectional study, children with CP between 6 and 12 years of age were recruited… Expand
Behavioral Difficulties in Adolescents With Cerebral Palsy
TLDR
Behavioral difficulties remained frequent in adolescents with cerebral palsy, particularly in those with greater functional limitations, and weak associations were found between parental stress and externalized problems. Expand

Findings illustrate the need to monitor family functioning intermittently as the child develops and direct appropriate resources to optimize child and family well-being and identify factors associated with distress. Expand
Behavioral and emotional problems in children and adults with cerebral palsy.
TLDR

Behavioral problems in children with motor and intellectual disabilities: prevalence and associations with maladaptive personality and marital relationship.
TLDR
Examination of the prevalence of parent-reported and daily caretaker-reported behavioral problems in children with motor and intellectual disabilities using the Developmental Behavior Checklist revealed that lower scores on Compulsivity and higher scores on Emotional Instability and Disagreeableness were related to behavioral problems. Expand
Screening for psychopathology in a national cohort of 8- to 15-year-old children with cerebral palsy.
TLDR
The high prevalence of emotional and behavioral problems indicates that screening for psychopathology should be a part of multidisciplinary follow-up of CP. Expand
Sleep disorders in children with cerebral palsy: neurodevelopmental and behavioral correlates.
TLDR
The results confirm that sleep disorders are common in children with cerebral palsy and the relationship between motor and cognitive behavior and epilepsy should be further explored to better understand how these factors influence one another to identify effective treatments and to improve the well-being of the child.

BACKGROUND Children with cerebral palsy (CP) may be at risk of behavioral difficulties. AIMS 1) Determine the prevalence of behavioral difficulties in preschool- and school-aged children with CPExpand
Self-Rated Depressive Symptoms in Children and Youth with and without Cerebral Palsy: A Pilot Study
TLDR
Hierarchical multiple regression analysis revealed that the greater severity of depressive symptoms in children with CP was mediated by hyperactivity/inattention and peer problems, and it is imperative to provide opportunities to participate in social activities from an early age. Expand

Course of behaviour problems of children with cerebral palsy: the role of parental stress and support.
TLDR
Levels of behaviour problems are elevated but diminish during adolescence for children with CP, and support related to parents' socio-economic and living situation and to parents's social relationships was positively related to total behaviour problems, internalizing and externalizing behaviours of children. Expand
Psychological problems in children with cerebral palsy: a cross-sectional European study.
TLDR
Care must be taken in the assessment and management of children with cerebral palsy to ensure psychological problems are not overlooked and potentially preventable risk factors like pain are treated effectively, and the validity of the SDQ for children with severe disability warrants further assessment. Expand
Behaviour in children with cerebral palsy with and without epilepsy
TLDR
It is concluded that behavioural problems are common in children with CP, and even more when epilepsy is present, and professionals need to address them. Expand
Determinants of life quality in school-age children with cerebral palsy.
TLDR
It is indicated that quality of life is highly variable in children with cerebral palsy, with about half experiencing a life quality similar to typically developing children. Expand
Social adjustment of children with cerebral palsy in mainstream classes: peer perception
TLDR
Findings showed that children with CP had fewer reciprocated friendships, exhibited fewer sociable/leadership behaviours, and were more isolated and victimized by their peers than their classmates without a disability. Expand
Maternal parenting stress and its correlates in families with a young child with cerebral palsy.
TLDR
The results confirmed the individuality of families, and that individual characteristics of coping and feeling in control, together with family support and cohesion, are associated with variation in amount of stress experienced in parenting a child with cerebral palsy. Expand

TLDR
Since the psychiatric complications of childhood hemiplegia are persistent as well as common, they warrant increased clinical and research attention and all children with hemipLegia deserve careful monitoring for psychiatric problems, with a view to early intervention or the deployment of preventative approaches.

Child Health and Parental Stress in School-Age Children With a Preschool Diagnosis of Developmental Delay

Assessment of child health and well-being and parental stress in a cohort of school-age children diagnosed before school entry with either global developmental delay or developmental language impairment found poor psychosocial health was a common comorbidity. Expand
A population-based analysis of behavior problems in children with cerebral palsy.
TLDR
Using the National Health Interview Survey, Child Health Supplement for 1981 and 1988, parent-reported behavior problems of children with cerebral palsy, with mental retardation, with other chronic conditions, and with no known health problem were analyzed using the Behavior Problem Index. Expand
Comparing the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire and the Child Behavior Checklist: Is Small Beautiful?
