About the Complete Book
Presents and reviews outcome measures across a wide range of attributes that are applicable to children and youth with developmental disabilities.
The book uses the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF-CY) as a framework for organizing the various measures into sections and chapters.
Each chapter co-incides with domains within Body Functions, Activities and Participation, and Personal and Environmental Factors. Advances in measurement using neuroimaging technologies and genetic testing are also included, as are chapters addressing broad measures of health and quality of life. Each chapter provides a representative sample of useful measures, with more detailed descriptions of those with the best properties and potential utility. Most chapters follow a prescribed format: what is the construct, general factors to consider when measuring this domain; and overview of recommended measures.
This book is invaluable for clinicians and educators seeking an appropriate, psychometrically sound measure in a particular domain of functioning that can be used with an individual child or target population. The book will also be a useful resource for researchers in the field of childhood disability.
Occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech-language pathologists, psychologists, physicians, nurses, and others who provide services to infants, children and youth with developmental disabilities; researchers investigating research questions pertaining to the field of childhood disability, university-based students in health-profession programs with courses related to the assessment of children and youth with developmental disabilities.
