Communication can be difficult for children with cerebral palsy. Over the years, several classification systems have been established to understand a child’s communication abilities. A new study published in Developmental Medicine & Child Neurology found that the Functional Communication Classification System (FCCS) is a clinically reliable tool to classify everyday communication of children ages 5-18 with cerebral palsy. Researchers compared FCCS results obtained by speech-language pathologists and parents of participants, finding that ratings were very closely aligned. This consistency suggests the FCCS is an effective way to monitor patients’ therapies.
