Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

The PEDI-PRO is a self-report of functional performance designed for transition-age youth with DD ages 14 through 22. We evaluated the usability of the PEDI-PRO software in clinical practice and established the reliability and accessibility of the PEDI-PRO user interface with transition-age youth with DD. Clinicians report high usability, and the accessibility features appear to support reliable reporting of daily activities, social and cognitive, and mobility function by youth with DD.
