Purpose: We intended to describe how concepts from recent models of disability have been studied for evaluation of children with cerebral palsy (CP) and their clinical implications. Method: We revised studies that focused on the components of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) in children with CP. Results: Researchers have reported that children with CP exhibit impairments in various body functions/structures, limitations in functional activities… 

Relationship between clinical outcome measurements and muscle thickness in cerebral palsy

Novel findings suggest that muscle thickness ultrasound imaging is closely associated with WMFT, WeeFIM, and QUEST variables, which provides important clinical insights when using broad clinical assessment and imaging in children with CP.

International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) as a Framework for Change

This article demonstrates how the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health has reinvented the language and understanding of childhood disability and rehabilitation.

Application of the international classification of functioning, disability and health - children and youth in children with cerebral palsy

A perspective on its use in describing children with cerebral palsy is provided and the interconnected concepts of the ICF are more important than the classification elements itself.

Postural control in Down syndrome and relationships with the dimensions of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health – a systematic review

The literature addressing postural control in children and adolescents with Down syndrome is reviewed, with a focus in the interactions among the components of the International Classification of Functioning (ICF).

Clinical tools designed to assess motor abilities in children with cerebral palsy

The psychometric properties of many of the tools used by rehabilitation professionals to test motor abilities in children with cerebral palsy have not been evaluated for this population and often have a poor methodological quality of measurement.

Test-Retest Reliability and Construct Validity of the German Translation of the Gait Outcome Assessment List (GOAL) Questionnaire for Children with Ambulatory Cerebral Palsy.

The German GOAL may serve as a much needed patient-reported outcome measure of gait-related function in ambulant children and adolescents with CP and the test-retest reliability was excellent as was internal consistency given the GOAL total score.

Relationship between static postural control and the level of functional abilities in children with cerebral palsy

The repercussions of impairments to the body structure and function in terms of the activity levels of children with CP such that postural control impairments in these children lead to higher requirements for caregiver assistance.

Pediatric neurorehabilitation and the ICF.

The main messages coming from this experience are on the feasibility of the introduction of ICF-CY language and the bio-psycho-social model in the described setting and on the positive response by the stakeholders.

International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health in a cohort of children with cognitive, motor, and complex disabilities.

The recently endorsed World Health Organization (WHO) International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) is proposed as a new tool to describe human functioning and health in a multiprofessional approach for individuals of all ages and proved to be applicable and reliable, and strongly correlated with established scales.

The relationship between gross motor function and participation restriction in children with cerebral palsy: an exploratory analysis.

In ambulatory children with CP, better physical function is associated with a lesser impact of disability; however, the relationship between function and participation is complex.

Neuroimpairments, activity limitations, and participation restrictions in children with cerebral palsy.

Motor function and learning disability were important predictors for participation restrictions in children with CP and has the capacity to be a model to help plan interventions for specific functional goals and to ascertain the child's participation in society.

This review identified only emergent understandings of the naturally occurring changes in the participation of children with cerebral palsy that come with increasing age and, concurrently, with increasing social and environmental demands.

Participation of children with cerebral palsy is influenced by where they live

Higher levels of participation among children with CP are associated with residence in certain districts, and this is not attributable to variations in case‐mix or functional capacity of the children.

A systematic review of measures of activity limitation for children with cerebral palsy

It is suggested that a range of measures is required to evaluate activity, and assessment should be tailored to the individual needs of children with CP.

Child or family assessed measures of activity performance and participation for children with cerebral palsy: a structured review.

There remains much scope for developing valid and reliable self-assessed measures corresponding to the WHO ICF dimensions of activities and participation.

Participation and enjoyment of leisure activities in school‐aged children with cerebral palsy

Results demonstrated that these children with cerebral palsy were actively involved in a wide range of leisure activities and experienced a high level of enjoyment, however, involvement was lower in skill‐based and active physical activities as well as community‐based activities.

To what extent do children with cerebral palsy participate in everyday life situations?

Overall, children with cerebral palsy participated less often than their non-disabled peers across a number of lifestyle and cultural pursuits and should be incorporated in routine clinical practice.
