GMFCS III EXAMPLE
Look at the GMFM-66 data for this child. As you can see, the scores are gradually increasing as the child grows but does this report on how they are doing compared to their peers? Advance the slide to see the percentile comparison.
Here we see the same tabulated data with the percentile calculated and plotted on the right hand side.
The final measurement shows that there has been a decline compared with what might have been expected.
In a similar fashion consider these results from a child classified as GMFCS V where there appears to be a steady decline in performance.
Revealing the percentile results shows that their peers would be losing performance at a faster rate so this child is really doing well.
