Abstract

The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) is the World Health Organization’s psychosocial model of disability and functioning. The ICF, and children and youth version (ICF-CY) contain a nested code structure for the classification of body functions and structures, activities and participation and environmental factors. Due to the ICF-CY containing over 1600 codes, sub-sets of codes determined to be relevant to functioning for individual conditions have been developed, called Core Sets.

This project combined the items of several Core Sets as items of an assessment tool to comprehensively assess functioning for young people with neurodevelopmental conditions (NDCs).
