Everything's Measurable!

Assess, document and recommend confidently! Everything’s Measurable! is a highly-interactive workshop on the assessment of children and youth with neurologic and developmental disabilities, 3-21 years old. Carlo will highlight the advantages of using the International Classification of Function (ICF) as a framework to guide the assessment process. He will also relate the ICF to the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework (OTPF) language with a goal of unifying and enhancing communication in OT and PT practices. Participants will learn the psychometric properties, statistical norms, and interpretation of tests and measures covering the different domains of the ICF: personal factors (occupational profile), environmental factors (context), participation (occupation), activity (performance skills), and body structure & function (client factors).

This workshop will cover 100+ standardized and non-standardized tools. Carlo will highlight the use of free, functional, and easy-to-use tests for participation, personal factors, arm function, gross motor function, wheelchair mobility and body structure & function so those with limited to no budget can also implement the use of these tools. Participants will practice administration and scoring of tests. Carlo will illustrate the proper selection and utilization of tests and measures in determining the need for therapy services and monitoring outcomes in various practice settings (i.e., home, clinic, hospital, and school). Participants will learn to organize and conduct assessment using a Hypothesis Oriented Pediatric Focused Algorithm (HOP-FA) + ICF-based Approach. Case studies will be used to facilitate learning, and to gauge achievement of the learning objectives.
