Normative values for the ACTIVLIM-CP Article Summary

Posted on: August 30, 2022 | By: swalton8 | Filed under: ACTIVLIM-CP

ACTIVLIM-CP was recently developed for children who have cerebral palsy (CP) and used to assess their global activity performance in 43 different areas focusing on self-care, mobility, and domestic life. The purpose of this article was to provide normative values in regards to the ACTIVLIM-CP, determine its ability to discriminate between various functional levels in children with cerebral palsy, and determine its precision, construct validity, and clinical relevance. The study population included 503 typically developing children (259 boys and 244 girls) ages 2 to 18 years old and 285 children with cerebral palsy (134 boys and 15 girls) also aged 2 to 18 years old. Data was collected by having the parents complete the ACTIVLIM-CP questionnaire. For typically developing children, the parents completed the questionnaire through the child’s school, and for parents of children with CP, they completed the questionnaire either during the child’s usual care from health professionals or…

Citation: Paradis J, Arnould C, Thonnard J, et al. Responsiveness of the ACTIVLIM‐CP questionnaire: Measuring global activity performance in children with cerebral palsy. Developmental medicine and child neurology. 2018;60(11):1178-1185. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1111/dmcn.13927. doi: 10.1111/dmcn.13927. The study “Responsiveness of the ACTIVLIM-CP questionnaire: measuring global activity performance in children with cerebral palsy (CP)” is an investigation aimed at evaluating the responsiveness of the ACTIVLIM-CP in two evidence-based therapeutic interventions in children with CP: motor-skill learning-intensive intervention targeting upper extremities and lower extremities (HABIT-ILE) or botulinum neurotoxin-A (BoNT-A) injection with conventional physiotherapy. Additionally, this study aimed to determine differences in the responsiveness of the ACTIVLIM-CP among different levels of the baseline gross motor function level of the participants. Overall, this study included 87 children who had a CP diagnosis, were levels I to IV on the Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS), completed the assessment times, and were ages 6 to 18 years old. The participants received…
