Abstract

Physical function is crucial to participation in life activities and must always be accurately assessed in children with cerebral palsy (CP)1. The Activities Scale for Kids performance (ASKp) is currently used for this purpose, but its psychometric properties have not yet been completely verified in children with CP2, the principal cause of disability in industrialized countries3. Recently, the reliability of the Italian version of the scale was confirmed in this population and initial proof of validity was collected. However, there is no gold standard that can serve as a criterion. We verified the ASKp convergent validity with respect to the Gross Motor Function Measure-66 (GMFM-66), the gold standard in the assessment of gross motor abilities in this population
