      Screening for childhood mental health disorders using the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire: the validity of multi-informant reports (pages 453–459)

      Samantha Johnson, Chris Hollis, Neil Marlow, Victoria Simms and Dieter Wolke

      Version of Record online: 11 JAN 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/dmcn.12360

      What this paper adds

      • The SDQ has excellent diagnostic utility in a preterm population.
      • Pervasive SDQ ratings provide the most accurate estimate of the prevalence of psychiatric disorders for research purposes.
      • Obtaining multi-informant reports is preferable for assessing most mental health outcomes.

      Version of Record online: 1 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/dmcn.12289

      What this paper adds

      • This study provides information regarding prognosis and predictors of ADL outcomes in children with cerebellar atrophy.
      • A better understanding of the prevalence of functional disabilities in children with cerebellar atrophy is achieved.
      • This is the first prospective study to evaluate ADL outcomes in children with cerebellar atrophy.

      Relationship between cognitive dysfunction, gait, and motor impairment in children and adolescents with neurofibromatosis type 1 (pages 468–474)

      Joel A Champion, Kristy J Rose, Jonathan M Payne, Joshua Burns and Kathryn N North

      Version of Record online: 4 JAN 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/dmcn.12361

      What this paper adds

      • This paper characterises the nature of motor impairment in children and adolescents with NF1.
      • Novel associations between motor impairment, gait, and neurocognitive measures in children with NF1 are presented.
      • Data suggest a common pathogenic pathway affecting aspects of motor and cognitive impairment in NF1.

      Accuracy of skinfold and bioelectrical impedance assessments of body fat percentage in ambulatory individuals with cerebral palsy (pages 475–481)

      Donna J Oeffinger, Matthew J Gurka, Michelle Kuperminc, Sahar Hassani, Neeley Buhr and Chester Tylkowski

      Version of Record online: 17 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/dmcn.12342

      What this paper adds

      • BIA is an accurate assessment of body fat in ambulatory individuals with CP.
      • Use of estimated heights in BIA analysis only slightly reduces the accuracy.
      • CP-specific skinfold equations are validated.
      • CP-specific equations have improved accuracy over the traditional Slaughter equations.
      • Body fat can be accurately assessed using relatively inexpensive portable equipment.
