The purpose of this study was to investigate the cause-effect relationship between motor impairments, hand function, gross motor function and activities of daily living (ADL) in children with cerebral palsy through the analysis of structural equation modeling. For this, 105 children with cerebral palsy (between 6 and 12 years old) were assessed about muscle tone and strength, range of motion, abilities of selective motor control, hand function, gross motor function and ADL. The results of this study were follows: Firstly, there were significant correlations between motor impairments of muscle tone, muscle strength, the abilities of selective motor control and ADL (p < .05); Secondly, a good correlation between the gross motor function, hand function and ADL was found in all children (p < .05); Thirdly, the appropriateness of research model was good. This study focused on exploration of the relationship between the motor impairment, gross motor function, hand function and ADL through structural equation modeling.
