      AIM: To determine the stability of the Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS), Manual Ability Classification System (MACS), and Communication Function Classification System (CFCS) over 1-year and 2-year intervals using a process for consensus classification between parents and therapists.

      METHOD: Participants were 664 children with cerebral palsy (CP), 18 months to 12 years of age, one of their parents, and 90 therapists. Consensus between parents and therapists on level of ...

      BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Development of gross motor function in children with cerebral palsy (CP) has not been documented. The purposes of this study were to examine a model of gross motor function in children with CP and to apply the model to construct gross motor function curves for each of the 5 levels of the Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS).

      SUBJECTS: A stratified sample of 586 children with CP, 1 to 12 years of age, who reside in Ontario, Canada, and are known to ...

      CONTEXT: Lack of a valid classification of severity of cerebral palsy and the absence of longitudinal data on which to base an opinion have made it difficult to consider prognostic issues accurately.

      OBJECTIVE: To describe patterns of gross motor development of children with cerebral palsy by severity, using longitudinal observations, as a basis for prognostic counseling with parents and for planning clinical management.

      DESIGN: Longitudinal cohort study of children with cerebral palsy, ...

      The Gross Motor Function Measure (GMFM) was developed and validated originally by Russell and colleagues as an evaluative assessment of gross motor function in children with cerebral palsy (CP). The present study reports the results of reliability and validity testing of the GMFM for use with children with Down syndrome (DS). One hundred and twenty-three children with DS were assessed twice over a 6-month period, using the GMFM and the motor scale of the Bayley Scales of Infant ...

      This study assessed quality of life (QOL) and health-related quality of life (HRQOL) of 203 adolescents with cerebral palsy (111 males, 92 females; mean age 16y [SD 1y 9mo]). Participants were classified using the Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS), as Level I (n=60), Level II (n=33), Level III (n=28), Level IV (n=50), or Level V (n=32). QOL was assessed by self (66.5%) or by proxy (33.5%) with the Quality of Life Instrument for People With Developmental Disabilities, ...

      The aim of this study was to determine the reliability of family reports for the Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS), a condition-specific discriminative measure of severity of movement disability for children with cerebral palsy (CP). We conducted a cross-sectional survey using a short questionnaire with families of children with CP for whom we already had ratings of GMFCS level made by a health professional. We assessed the potentially confounding effect of whether the ...

      BACKGROUND: Adolescents with cerebral palsy (CP) show a reduced physical activity (PA). Currently there are no interventions for adolescents with CP in this critical life phase that optimise and maintain the individuals' physical activity in the long term. To develop such a program it is important to fully understand the factors that influence physical activity behaviours in adolescents with CP. The aim of this study is to explore what makes it easy or hard for adolescents with CP to be ...

      AIM: To explore associations between clinical variables and decline in motor capacity in adolescents with cerebral palsy (CP).

      METHOD: Participants included 76 males and 59 females, whose mean age at the beginning of the study was 14 years 6 months (SD 2.4, range 11.6-17.9); 51 at Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS) level III, 47 at level IV, and 37 at level V. Ninety-six participants had tetraplegia, 32 had diplegia, and one had hemiplegia. Types of motor disorder were ...

      This study explored the relationships between the Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS), limb distribution, and type of motor impairment. Data used were collected in the Ontario Motor Growth study, a longitudinal cohort study with a population-based sample of children with cerebral palsy (CP) in Canada (n=657; age 1 to 13 years at study onset). The majority (87.8%) of children with hemiplegia were classified as level I. Children with a bilateral syndrome were represented in ...

      BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Mobility and self-care are important considerations for successful transition of adolescents with cerebral palsy to adulthood. The purpose of this study was to characterize performance of physical activities from the perspective of adolescents themselves.

      SUBJECTS: The subjects were 156 adolescents with cerebral palsy, 11.6 to 17.7 years of age.

      METHODS: A therapist completed the Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS). Adolescents completed the ...

      To address the need for a standardized system to classify the gross motor function of children with cerebral palsy, the authors developed a five-level classification system analogous to the staging and grading systems used in medicine. Nominal group process and Delphi survey consensus methods were used to examine content validity and revise the classification system until consensus among 48 experts (physical therapists, occupational therapists, and developmental pediatricians with ...

      OBJECTIVE: To create gross motor function growth curves for children with Down syndrome (DS) and to estimate the probability that motor functions are achieved by different ages.

      DESIGN: Nonlinear growth curve analysis by using a 2-parameter (rate, upper limit) model.

      SETTING: Early intervention programs, schools, and children's homes.

      PARTICIPANTS: One hundred twenty-one children with DS, ages 1 month to 6 years.

      The purpose of this article is to describe our clinical experiences in using the Gross Motor Function Measure (GMFM) to evaluate motor development in children with Down syndrome and to provide strategies we found helpful in enhancing a child's adherence to standardized testing. The issues discussed are: (1) strategies for test administration; (2) modifications in administration and scoring; (3) reliability of the GMFM using the modified administration and scoring procedures; and (4) ...

      In this study parents' systematic accounts of the health status of 408 school-aged children with cerebral palsy (CP) are reported (221 males, 187 females; mean age 8 years 5 months, SD 1 year 11 months; range 5 to 13 years), as are relations between severity of functional motor impairment and eight functional health status domains. Data were collected as part of a longitudinal study of the motor development of a population-based, stratified, random sample of children with CP from across ...
