CASTRO, Naiane Muniz de  e  BLASCOVI-ASSIS, Silvana Maria. Scales of motor assesment in subjects with cerebral palsy: review article. Cad. Pós-Grad. Distúrb. Desenvolv. [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.2, pp. 18-31. ISSN 1519-0307.

Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a clinical condition resulted from an injury caused in the brain during its development. With the growing need to understand these symptoms and patients possibilities, we need to develop new tools that work in the evaluation of each case, assisting in the diagnosis of the patient's current condition and improving the rehabilitation process. The study aimed to search in literature the instruments used for the motor assessment of people with CP and describe theses tools. Articles surveyed were published in lilacs, Medline, Cochrane, scielo bases, and are available in full on BIREME. It were crossed the descriptors paralisia cerebral x questionário x escala x avaliação, contained in the DeCS list. The cross also occurred in English with terms cerebral palsy x questionnaire x scale x evaluation. Eleven articles selected for the development of this review; Eight articles used the GMFCS, three used the PEDI and the modified Ashworth scale. The MACS, GMFM and MobQuest were observed in two jobs each, the other scales were described in only one study. We conclude that there are different ways of evaluating motor issues in the CP, but we see some instruments that do not evaluate the public in question specifically, but we can use them.
