                                             GMFCS Level I
                                             Children walk indoors and outdoors, and climb stairs without
                                             limitations. Children perform gross motor skills including running
                                             and jumping but speed, balance, and coordination are reduced.




                                                GMFCS Level II
                                                Children walk indoors and outdoors, and climb stairs holding onto
                                                a railing but experience limitations walking on uneven surfaces
                                                and inclines, and walking in crowds or confined spaces. Children
                                                have at best only minimal ability to perform gross motor skills
                                                such as running and jumping.




                                                GMFCS Level III
                                                Children walk indoors or outdoors on a level surface with an
                                                assistive mobility device. Children may climb stairs holding onto a
                                                railing. Depending on upper limb function, children propel a
                                                wheelchair manually or are transported when travelling for long
                                                distances or outdoors on uneven terrain.




                                                GMFCS Level IV
                                                Children may maintain levels of function achieved before age 6 or
                                                rely more on wheeled mobility at home, school, and in the
                                                community. Children may achieve self-mobility using a power
                                                wheelchair.




                                                GMFCS Level V
                                                Physical impairments restrict voluntary control of movement and
                                                the ability to maintain antigravity head and trunk postures. All
                                                areas of motor function are limited. Functional limitations in sitting
                                                and standing are not fully compensated for through the use of
                                                adaptive equipment and assistive technology. At level V, children
                                                have no means of independent mobility and are transported.
                                                Some children achieve self-mobility using a power wheelchair
                                                with extensive adaptations.
