Physical Therapy published reference values for aerobic fitness in children, adolescents, and young adults who have cerebral palsy and are ambulatory. Three hundred six youth (ages 6-20), who were classified as Gross Motor Function Classification System levels I and II, were tested on the 10 m shuttle run. Based on the test scores, 4 reference curves were established. For any therapist working on aerobic fitness in children with CP, this article would be helpful to compare the children to a homogeneous group.
