Pediatric rehabilitation services for children with cerebral palsy: what can existing data sources tell us?
Mary Gannotti, University of Hartford, West Hartford, Connecticut
This is a summary of fourteen national, state, and local sources of data in the United States that provide information about children with cerebral palsy, their health, function, well being, and utilization of health services. Despite limitations, currently available sources of data may provide meaningful information for policy, practice, and program development.
