Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

The psychometric properties examined in this research study will enable evidence-informed decision making for OTs to select robust assessment tools when working with children with cerebral palsy. This study reports on the significantly better ability of the Upper-Extremity Cerebral Palsy Profile of Health and Function Computerized Adaptive Test in detecting a change in UE function of children with cerebral palsy when compared to other measures.
