Physical Activity Of Children At Home And School

Home and school are important settings where children can accrue health promoting physical activity (PA). Little is known about the PA levels and associated environmental characteristics at home and school in children with cerebral palsy (CP). Cerebral palsy (CP) represents the largest diagnostic group treated in pediatric rehabilitation. The hallmark impairment in children with CP is a disordered development of gross motor function that has a negative impact on physical activity (PA) levels. Children with CP are less physically active than typically developing peers, and to minimize health risks associated with sedentary living there is a growing need for a better understanding of potentially modifiable variables that are associated with PA in this population. The Behaviors of Eating and Activity for Children’s Health Evaluation System (BEACHES) is a measurement system that documents children’s PA and eating behavior, as well as associated environmental characteristics and events in homes and schools.
