  1. MA2, Melbourne Assessment of Unilateral Upper Limb Function, version 2; PEDI-CAT, Pediatric Evaluation of Disability Inventory-Computer Adaptive Test
  2. Partial correlation coefficients are adjusted by age and GMFCS levels and are Spearman’s r values for daily activity, mobility and Pearson’s r values for social/cognitive, and responsibility domains of the PEDI-CAT
  3. *Two-tailed significance, P < 0.05
  4. ** Two-tailed significance, P < 0.01
  5. Significant P-values are highlighted in bold font
  6. a Correlation coefficient value 0.4–0.6; moderate correlation
