The Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS) is a widely used method for classifying the movement ability of children with cerebral palsy. To date, use of the GMFCS has relied upon a health professional to classify a child. The newly developed GMFCS Family and Self Report Questionnaire presents an option for parent involvement in classifying children's motor abilities. The questionnaire is available for four age groups of children and youth: 2 to 4 years, 4 to 6 years, 6 to 12 years, and 12 to 18 years.
