ⓘ General movements assessment

A general movements assessment is a type of medical assessment used in the diagnosis of cerebral palsy, and is particularly used to follow up high-risk neonatal cases. The general movements assessment involves measuring movements that occur spontaneously among those less than four months of age and appears to be most accurate test for the condition. These include the tonic neck reflex, grasp reflex, Moro reflex, tongue thrust reflex and rooting reflexes. The quality of the childs general movements gives information about how the brain connects, particularly the periventricular white matter. The GMA is best performed 3 months post-term. At around that time, in typical infants, a pattern called fidgety movements is evident, and if the movements are abnormal or the fidgety movements are not apparent, the child is at risk of developing CP. A pattern known as writhing movements frequently gives false positives for cerebral palsy.
