The article reports on the research conducted by Allan Colver and colleagues regarding the quality of life (QoL) of children with cerebral palsy (CP) in Europe. It was undertaken on children ages 8 to 12 years old from various countries in Europe. Result shows that their life was similar to that of children without functional limitations.
