Abstract This manuscript provides an update on the assessment of growth and nutrition in children with cerebral palsy and children with similar neurodevelopmental disabilities. Topics include the assessment of linear growth using segmental measures, avoidance of commonly used tools to assess nutritional status in typically developing children that are not valid in this population of children and how to use other nutritional assessment tools that have been developed specific to this population of children.
