|Description||Children with central motor disorders will be tested twice within one week with the Melbourne Assessment. The assessments will be video scored. At a later time point, different raters will rate the same video for inter-rater reliability, the same rater will score the same video for intra-rater reliability, and the same rater will score the repeated assessment videos for test-retest reliability.|
