The purpose of this study was to determine the average change score on the VMI that would represent a clinically important change in functional skills. Anchor-based methods were used to compare VMI change scores to Likert scale ratings of children’s performance in fine-motor tasks, handwriting, and activities of daily living. Results indicated that children with improvements in functional skills had VMI scores that declined. These findings question the utility of VMI scores as indicators of progress in children.
