Abstract

There is a spectrum of outcomes in health, functional skills, and participation among children with one of the cerebral palsy syndromes. Medical advances have allowed us to better understand the importance of goal-oriented management and attention to nutrition, safe feeding, seizures, deformity, and spasticity. However, ensuring long-term successful outcomes require coordination between medicine, social services, education, and rehabilitation and continually examining how to promote functioning and participation. Until multicentered population registries and networks for clinical trials are established, our knowledge of evidence-based outcomes will remain partial and incomplete.
