  1. for the HCP to fill out a questionnaire about their CP child, related to general subject characteristics, motor function, co-morbidities, type of therapies, anthropometry, feeding mode and nutritional status; and B) for parents (/legal representatives) to receive and fill out questionnaires about their CP child and themselves, related to general subject characteristics, motor function, co-morbidities, type of therapies, anthropometry, feeding mode and nutritional status, participation and (their own) quality of life.
