Tests and Measures 1

This course will bridge the gap between tests and measures and their applicability in pediatric practice in school, at home and clinic. The speaker will present pediatric tests of mobility, balance and endurance which are functional, require minimal materials, and can mostly be completed in 15 minutes or less. A variety of tests will be discussed, covering a wide range of motor disabilities, from mild to severe. The most current literature will be presented to ensure reliable administration of these tests, provide statistical norms or small-group averages, and guide interpretation of test results.
