Abstract

Purpose: Oral motor problems, feeding and swallowing problems are one of the most common problems in children with cerebral palsy. The Eating and Drinking Ability Classification System (EDACS) is used to classify eating and drinking performance in children with cerebral palsy. The aims of this study were to translate the EDACS into the Turkish and to investigate its intra-rater reliability and the relationship with other functional classification systems.
