The funconal proile ncluded data on the type of cerebral palsy, the level of mparment of gross motor, ine bmanual and manual ables, level of funconal ndependence, ntellectual dsablty, present sensory mparments, communcaon dsorders and socalzaon. Due to the prevalence of health problems, data on the general health status and the presence of eplepsy are also ncluded. The study ncluded 117 parcpants dagnosed wth cerebral palsy, 66 (56.4%) male and 51 (43.6%) female, aged from seven to 18 years, resdng on the terrtory of the Republc of Serba. Funconal Proile was created by mplemenng Gross Motor Funcon Classicaon System – Expanded and Revsed (GMFCS–E&R; Palsano, Rosenbaum, Bartle, & Lvngston, 2007), Manual Ablty Classicaon System (MACS; Elasson et al., 2006), Bmanual Fne Motor Funcon (BFMF; Beckung & Hagberg, 2002) and Funconal Independence Measure for Chldren (WeeFIM; Msall et al., 1994). Other data were collected from avalable medcal, educaonal or psychologcal documentaon, and from members of the expert team, ther parents or caregvers. In addon to descrpve stascs, χ  2  test of ndependence and Mann-Whtney U-test for group comparson were appled. Stascally sgnicant derences were conirmed n relaon to the level of funconal ndependence n the domans of self-care (p=0.029, r=0.201), cognon (p=0.000, r=0.461) and overall ndependence (p=0.008, r=0.244). In addon, stascally sgnicant derences were found n the doman of communcaon (p=0.001, r=0.297), ntellectual ablles (p=0.000, r=0.617) and socalzaon (p=0.000, r=0.441), but also n relaon to the health problems present (p=0.010, ϕ =0.258). The results obtaned ndcate that the domnant dsorders, as an assocated ones, can be consdered as ndcators of mulple dsables n chldren dagnosed wth cerebral palsy. The results were further dscussed n relaon to prevous and current, prmarly populaon-based studes of the phenomenology of cerebral palsy. Key words: assocated dsorders, the dagnoss of cerebral palsy, funconal proile 1 Ths work resulted from the project “Crme n Serba: Phenomenology, rsks, and possbles of socal ntervenon” (regstraon number 47011) funded by the Mnstry of Educaon, Scence and Technologcal Development of the Republc of Serba.
