Abstract [en]

Purpose: To examine change in, and longitudinal relationships between motor capacity and activity performanceacross the Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS).

Methods: Ninety-two youths withcerebral palsy were examined at 2 time points, 1 year apart, using the Gross Motor Function Measure–66(GMFM-66) for motor capacity, and the Chinese version of the Activities Scale for Kids-Performance Version(ASKp-C) for activity performance. The score changes and capacity-to-performance/performance-to-capacitypathways were explored across GMFCS levels.

Results: The GMFM-66 scores declined over time in GMFCSlevels IV-V while ASKp-C scores increased in GMFCS level I. The correlations for both pathways in GMFCSlevels I, III, and IV-V were significant with a higher correlation for performance-to-capacity pathway inGMFCS levels IV-V.

Conclusions: Longitudinal changes in and relationships between capacity and performancediffer between GMFCS levels. The opportunities to perform activities need to be emphasized in GMFCS levelsIV-V.
