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.
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
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
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
Limb distribution, motor impairment, and functional classification of cerebral palsy.
TLDR
An analysis of function (GMFCS) by impairment (limb distribution) indicates that the latter clinical characteristic does not add prognostic value over GMFCS, and the value of these subgroups as an indicator of mobility is limited in comparison with the classification of severity with the GM FCS. Expand
Everyday functioning in young children with cerebral palsy: functional skills, caregiver assistance, and modifications of the environment.
TLDR
Stepwise regression analysis showed that the GMFCS was a good predictor of everyday functioning with age and learning problems as significantly contributing factors, particularly in self-care and social function. Expand
Interobserver agreement of the Gross Motor Function Classification System in an ambulant population of children with cerebral palsy
TLDR
This study has shown that agreement with parent report increases with therapists’experience of the GMFCS and knowledge of the child at the time of grading, and the potential for extrapolation ofGMFCS rating from an existing CP registry, providing the latter has sufficient data on locomotor ability. Expand
Activities of daily living in children with hemiplegic cerebral palsy: a cross-sectional evaluation using the Assessment of Motor and Process Skills.
TLDR
Motor performance in activities of daily living as detected by the AMPS seemed to worsen with age in children with hemiplegic CP, with younger children performing significantly better than older children for motor skill ability. Expand
Activities and participation of 9- to 13-year-old children with cerebral palsy
TLDR
Activities and participation in children with cerebral palsy can, to a large extent, be explained by only a few associated factors. Expand
Participation of children with cerebral palsy is influenced by where they live.
The study aimed to determine whether degree of participation of children with cerebral palsy (CP) is influenced by where they live, as predicted by the social model of disability. Ninety-two per centExpand

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
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
BILATERAL SPASTIC CEREBRAL PALSY‐A COMPARATIVE STUDY BETWEEN SOUTHWEST GERMANY AND WESTERN SWEDEN. II: EPIDEMIOLOGY
TLDR
Epidemiological data of a collaborative study on children with bilateral spastic cerebral palsy (BSCP) 3 between south‐west Germany and western Sweden are reported, and results are interpreted in favour of a predominantly prenatal aetiology in normal birthweight and of a predominately peri‐ and neonatal aetiological in LBW children.
