BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare the Gross Motor Function Measure (GMFM) and the Peabody Developmental Gross Motor Scale (PDMS-GM) as measures of change in infants with cerebr-al palsy (CP) and infants with motor delays. We hypothesized that mean change scores would be greater for the GMFM than for the PDMS-GM. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Subjects were 42 infants with a mean adjusted age of 13.9 months (SD=6.1, range=4.2-24.2). Twenty-four infants had CP, and 18… CONTINUE READING
