Purpose. To describe the level of functioning of adolescents and young adults with cerebral palsy (CP) and study determinants of their level of functioning. Method. In the CP Transition study, adolescents and young adults aged 16 – 20 years, diagnosed with CP without severe learning disabilities (n = 103) participated. In this group we assessed subject characteristics, i.e., age, type of CP, gross motor function (GMFCS), level of education as well as outcome measures on functioning in daily… Expand
Determinants of intensity of participation in leisure and recreational activities by youth with cerebral palsy.
TLDR
A model of determinants of intensity of participation in leisure and recreational activities by youth with cerebral palsy indicates that higher physical ability, higher enjoyment, younger age, female sex, and higher family activity orientation are associated with higherintensity of participation.

Development of social functioning and communication in school-aged (5-9 years) children with cerebral palsy.
TLDR
Motor functioning and intellectual ability can be used to identify children at risk for progressive restrictions in social functioning and communication in school-aged children with cerebral palsy. Expand

TLDR
This study revealed a dissociation between participation accomplishment and satisfaction with participation among adolescents with CP, and recommends not only to focus on accomplishment but also, if not mainly, on satisfaction. Expand
Experienced problems of young adults with cerebral palsy: targets for rehabilitation care.
TLDR
Although frequently addressed during pediatric rehabilitation care, problems with mobility and self-care still prevail in young adults with CP, and during the transition into adulthood, young adult with CP may experience problems regarding domestic life and work, which they consider important. Expand
Factors contributing to the longitudinal development of social participation in individuals with cerebral palsy.
TLDR
The results might provide parents and caregivers with starting points to further develop tailored support for individuals with epilepsy, with speech impairment and/or attending special education at risk for suboptimal social participation. Expand
Development of daily activities in school-age children with cerebral palsy.
TLDR
The findings indicate that there are different sets of determinants for the course of different domains of daily activities in school-age children with CP, which may help to set realistic expectations and to create appropriate treatment plans. Expand

OBJECTIVES: To describe the developmental trajectories of mobility performance and daily activities in children and young adults with cerebral palsy (CP). To explore the influence of gross motorExpand
Patterns and predictors of participation in leisure activities outside of school in children and adolescents with Cerebral Palsy.
TLDR
Participation in leisure activities outside of school of Spanish children and adolescents with Cerebral Palsy was determined more by child and environmental factors than by family ones. Expand
Engagement of children with cerebral palsy in daily life
Objective. Active engagement of children with cerebral palsy in daily life activities is a predictor of general social participation and is crucial for their quality of life. The aim of this studyExpand

Participation and activity performance of students with cerebral palsy within the school environment
TLDR
Significant differences exist between participation and activity performance of typical students and students with CP included in regular schools and the continuing need to provide rehabilitative intervention towards removing existing barriers within the inclusive environment is stressed. Expand

TLDR
A pilot study with a measurement tool (LIFE-H) of the concepts of life habits and handicap situations found that the LIFE-H items covered most of a person's life habits (ADL and social roles) and that it could be used to determine the appearance of handicapped situations. Expand
