This study aimed to evaluate whether parental ratings of expanded and revised Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS E&R) and Manual Ability Classification System (MACS) had agreement with clinicians' ratings when classifying children with CP to these two well-known classifications of motor functioning and hereby to evaluate intertester reliability of the classification systems between clinicians and parents.
