ABSTRACT

Aims: To assess the reliability and validity of the caregiver priorities and child health index of life with disabilities (CPCHILD) – Brazilian Portuguese Version (BPV), a measure of health status and well-being of children with cerebral palsy.
Methods: After the translation and cross-cultural adaptation of the CPCHILD questionnaire to Brazilian Portuguese previously published, the questionnaire was applied to 104 caregivers of patients with cerebral palsy and was reapplied a second time 2–3 weeks after to measure test-retest reliability (n = 26). The children were classified according to the GMFCS (Gross Motor Function Classification System) from I to V, and demographic data were recorded. Results: The mean age of patients was 12.44±4.04 years. Mean total score on the CPCHILD was 66.68±16.55. The mean of the absolute differences in total scores between first and second questionnaire administration was 0.35±9.03 points (range -1.57 to 2.26). The ICC for the total questionnaire score was 0.959 and ranged from 0.922 to 0.983. Cronbach’s a coefficient (internal consistence) was 0.933 and was above 0.80 in all domains of the CPCHILD (range 0.849–0.951), except for the 5th domain (0.472). According to Pearson’s correlation coefficient, there was a negative correlation between GMFCS levels and the CPCHILD scores (r= -0.62, p<0.0001).
Conclusion: CPCHILD BPV proved to be a reliable and valid instrument to measure the health status and well-being of cerebral palsy children.
