Objective: The purpose of this study was to translate "Cerebral Palsy Quality of Life" (CPQOL) questionnaire into Farsi and to determine its validity and reliability.

Materials & Methods: In this cross-sectional study, CPQOL was first translated into Farsi through 5 stages, and then its validity and reliability. 200 parents of children with cerebral palsy aged 4-12 years were recruited from 8 selected rehabilitation center and 3 special education schools. Reliability (internal consistency and test-retest within a 3-week interval) and construct validity with Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS) and Manual Ability Classification System (MACS).

Results: Spearman's correlation coefficient was used to asses the relationship between CPQOL and GMFCS- E & R (0.18-0.32) and between CPQOL and MACS (0.13-0.40). Item discriminant validity was shown by %75 of items. Cranach’s alpha (0.61-0.87), SEM (4/8-15.27), interaclass correlation (0.47-0.84) showed high reliability of Farsi CPQOL questionnaire.

Conclusion: Farsi version of CPQOL has acceptable validity and reliability rates. It is now useful enough to be used for clinical as well as research purposes.
