Abstract

Recent developments in the conceptualisation of disability (1), definition and classification of cerebral palsy (CP), treatment goals, and research on the effectiveness of interventions require synthesis for AHPs in clinical practice. A multidisciplinary consensus conference which included an international group of 24 clinicians and researchers was convened by the International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics to consider research and contemporary thinking on the management of CP.
