Current assessment tools for assessing the functioning of young children with neurodevelopmental conditions or developmental delay are not as comprehensive or holistic as they could be. We developed and tested an assessment of functioning based on the World Health Organization’s International Classification of Functioning Disability and Health assessment over the last couple of years and have now revised it based on caregiver and clinician feedback.
We now need clinicians to give feedback about the tool to determine its clinical utility.
Who can participate?
Clinicians who complete assessments of functioning, or receive assessment of functioning reports, for children 0-5 years old with diagnosed or suspected neurodevelopmental conditions (e.g. autism, cerebral palsy, global developmental delay).
You must also work in Australia and be fluent in English.
What will participation involve?
To be involved you will need to attend either a workshop or an interview about the clinical utility of a new comprehensive assessment of functioning (and report).
These will take approximately 1-2 hours and can be done in person or via videoconference.
