Abstract

Background: It is important to determine the quality of life (QoL) and level of participation in children with Cerebral Palsy (CP). Previous research has used reports from adolescents or caregivers, but there is no evidence that caregivers' reports accurately reflect the experiences of the adolescents they are interested in.
