Abstract

A total of 19 children with a history of perinatal stroke were asked how they saw their own motor abilities and disabilities using the Activities Scale for Kids (ASK) performance and capability questionnaires. The median ASK performance score was significantly lower (86.7) than the median ASK capability score (93.4; P =.03), suggesting children felt they were not doing everything they were capable of doing. Performance and capability total scores were not associated with gender or stroke type; lower performance and capability scores were associated with cerebral palsy. Within groups, performance scores were significantly lower than capability scores in girls (P =.02), children with presumed perinatal stroke (P =.02), children with unilateral stroke (P =.02), and children with large versus small branch unilateral middle cerebral artery stroke (P =.03). Further work is needed to understand why these children's performance does not match perceived capability.
