In a representative series of 176 children with cerebral palsy (CP), aged 5 to 8 years, associations were studied between additional neuroimpairments, activity limitations, and participation restrictions in the domains of mobility, education, and social relations as proposed in the International Classification of Functioning Disability and Health (ICF). Learning disability occurred in 40%, epilepsy in 35%, visual impairment in 20%, and infantile hydrocephalus in 9% of the children. Additional… Expand
Neuroimpairments, activity performance, and participation in children with cerebral palsy mainstreamed in elementary schools
Participation and activity performance (motor and cognitive or behavioural) were examined in 148 children with cerebral palsy (CP; 87 males, 61 females; mean age 9y 8mo, SD 1y 11mo; range 6y 1mo toExpand
Neuroimpairments, activity performance, and participation in children with cerebral palsy mainstreamed in elementary schools.
TLDR
It is suggested that within the mainstreamed environment, participation and activity performance increase as motor disability and/or additional neuroimpairments (speech and language impairments and learning disability) decrease. Expand
Gross and fine motor function and accompanying impairments in cerebral palsy.
TLDR
The classification of CP should be based on CP type and motor function, as the two combine to produce an indicator of total impairment load. Expand
Intelligence, Functioning, and Related Factors in Children with Cerebral Palsy.
TLDR
Intelligence assessment should be an essential part of CP evaluation and research because there is not enough reliable knowledge, unanimity regarding validity data, and population-specific norms in the intelligence assessments of children with CP. Expand
The importance of motor functional levels from the activity limitation perspective of ICF in children with cerebral palsy
TLDR
The usage of two different classification systems, GMFCS and MACS, to describe the capacity and performance in children with CP as defined by the ICF provides an easy and quick classification tool for indicating ‘activity limitations’ of ICF in childrenwith CP. Expand
Relationship of Cerebral Palsy Subtypes and Activity Limitations
TLDR
There is strong relationship between neurological subtype and activity limitations in children with CP and the importance of merging information on CP subtypes, based on SCPE and functional motor evaluations is stressed. Expand
Adults with Cerebral Palsy: Studies on physical activity, fitness and experienced problems
textabstractCerebral palsy (CP) is a frequently occurring condition in childhood: in the Netherlands children with CP account for approximately 50% of pediatric rehabilitation patients. CP is definedExpand
The natural history of gross motor development in children with cerebral palsy aged 1 to 15 years
TLDR
The gross motor development was demonstrated for the five GMFCS levels in children with spastic CP and these kind of curves may be useful for monitoring and predicting motor development, for planning treatment, and for evaluating outcome after interventions. Expand
Neuroimpairment, activity limitation, and participation restriction among children with cerebral palsy in Hong Kong.
TLDR
The findings of this study may serve as a reference for parents, service providers, and policy makers to work in partnership to achieve a more comprehensive health-care service for children with cerebral palsy and to facilitate better integration into the community. Expand
Stability of the gross motor function classification system in children with cerebral palsy for two years
TLDR
The findings indicate that the stability of GMFCS varies with time, duration, and age, and it is recommended thatGMFCS assessments be performed periodically, which are even more necessary for children with CP aged 2–4 years. Expand

Correlation between ICIDH handicap code and Gross Motor Function Classification System in children with cerebral palsy
TLDR
A strong correlation was found between high handicap scores as well as high levels on the GMFCS and the presence of learning disability, epilepsy, and obvious aetiology of CP, and a striking similarity in the grading of disability was present. Expand
Cerebral palsy in southern Sweden II. Gross motor function and disabilities
TLDR
The gross motor function and disabilities in children with cerebral palsy in southern Sweden were investigated and related to clinical features from a continuing healthcare follow‐up programme and classification revealed that children born abroad were more severely disabled. Expand
The Gross Motor Function Classification System for Cerebral Palsy: a study of reliability and stability over time
Children with cerebral palsy (CP) experience a change in motor function with age and development. It is important to consider this expected change in offering a prognosis, or in assessing differencesExpand
Validation of a model of gross motor function for children with cerebral palsy.
TLDR
Logistic regression, used to estimate the probability that children with CP are able to achieve gross motor milestones based on their GMFM total scores, suggests that distinctions between GMFCS levels are clinically meaningful. Expand
Development and reliability of a system to classify gross motor function in children with cerebral palsy
TLDR
A five‐level classification system analogous to the staging and grading systems used in medicine, which has application for clinical practice, research, teaching, and administration is developed. Expand
BILATERAL SPASTIC CEREBRAL PALSY—A COMPARATIVE STUDY BETWEEN SOUTHWEST GERMANY AND WESTERN SWEDEN. I: CLINICAL PATTERNS AND DISABILITIES
TLDR
The authors conclude that the two series of bilateral spastic cerebral palsy between south‐west Germany and western Sweden were comparable, and that reliable results between countries can be obtained if clear‐cut classifications and definitions are used. Expand
Life expectancy in children with cerebral palsy
TLDR
Life expectancy of this cohort of children with cerebral palsy born during 1966-84 was greater than has been suggested in some previous studies, and has important implications for social, educational, and health services. Expand

TLDR
This 8th Swedish population‐based cerebral palsy (CP) report comprises 241 children born 1991–94 and Probable aetiology was identified in 73% of preterm and 86% of term children. Expand
The changing panorama of cerebral palsy in Sweden. VI. Prevalence and origin during the birth year period 1983–1986
TLDR
The prevalence and origin of cerebral palsy in children born between 1983 and 1986 are reported and the particular critical period for the brain damage underlying cerebral palsY was considered to be weeks 26–34 of gestation, i.e. when periventricular structures are extraordinarily vulnerable.

Potentially asphyxiating conditions and spastic cerebral palsy in infants of normal birth weight.
TLDR
Potentially asphyxiating conditions, chiefly tight nuchal cord, were associated with an appreciable proportion of unexplained spastic quadriplegia but not with diplegia or hemiplegia. Expand
