  1. aData missing for one VLBW participant with unilateral spastic cerebral palsy
  2. bMean score for both hands
  3. cData missing for one VLBW participant with bilateral spastic cerebral palsy
  4. dData missing for one control participant
  5. ep-values for between-group differences in associations of physical and mental component summaries with motor skills
  6. HRQoL = health-related quality of life, VLBW = very low birth weight, CI = confidence interval
  7. MABC-2 = Movement Assessment Battery for Children-2, HiMAT = High-level Mobility Assessment Tool
  8. Higher scores on the Grooved Pegboard and Trail Making Test-5 indicate poorer function and higher scores on the MABC-2 and HiMAT indicate better function
  9. Regression coefficient B for motor test, in linear regression with physical component summary and mental component summary as dependent variable, and motor test, group, and motor test x group as independent variables
