  • Sociodemographic information has been pooled rather than attributed to each participant in order to minimise the possibility of identification of individual participants.

  • CCN, complex communication needs; FIM, functional independence measure—expression (higher score indicates less assistance required with expression); GMFCS, gross motor function classification system (higher score indicates more assistance required for mobility).
