The aim of the study was to evaluate long-term impact of intensive and continuously performed rehabilitation on the motor autonomy level children with CP. Motor autonomy levels, defined according to the Gross Motor Function Classification System GMFCS and Gross Motor Function Measure GMFM, were analyzed in 24 children with CP at the beginning of the study and at the last visit. During rehabilitation, GMFM scores increased above the expected value of initial GMFCS level in the majority of patients. Intensive rehabilitation had significant influence on motor improvement in children with CP.
