Fifty-one cerebral palsied individuals were tested for a complex of primitive cranio-oropharyngeal motor patterns. This study explored the incidence of these patterns and their relationship to age, feeding competence, speech intelligibility, and speech therapy progress. The patterns were often present in CP individuals in all age groups examined but, generally, were less numerous and of longer latency as age increased. Adequacy of speech, speech therapy progress, and feeding were found to decrease as the number of patterns shown increased and as the latency of pattern response decreased.
