Another clinical challenge concerns the boundaries between these classica topographical groupings, because it is probably impossible meaningfully to compare the level of involvement and functional impairment of the upper extremities with that of the lower extremities. Thus, for example, there is no recognized way to ascertain at what point on the continuum a person with ‘diplegia’ should be considered to have ‘quadriplegia’. There appear to have been few studies of interobserver agreement on the clinical classification of children with CP by topographical distribution, and what is available illustrates the challenges of finding agreement (Blair and Stanley 1985).

Extensive epidemiological research over the past 30 years has led to an understanding of aetiology based on appreciation of risk factors for CP, particularly with respect to prenatal, intrapartum, and immediate postnatal circumstances (O’Shea et al. 1998, ACOG Task Force 2014). The cause of CP in most individuals remains unknown. Rather than a single cause it is now clear that CP results from causal pathways involving multiple aspects of gestational risk factors including in utero environmental exposures and intrapartum stresses and genetic vulnerability (Stanley et al.

There was even a small proportion of children with ‘hemiplegia’ in GMFCS levels II to IV. Based on the approach to the development of a functional classification system (Rosenbaum et al. 2008), colleagues in Sweden created a GMFCS analogue called the Manual Ability Classification System) (Eliasson et al. nu, and reproduced in Appendix 2 of this book. More recently the Communication Function Classification System (CFCS) has become available (Hidecker et al. html and is reproduced in Appendix 3 of this book.
