Example text

Overall program evaluation may be an important purpose of assessment. If one is comparing a new method of teaching gross or fine motor skills with a current method, assessment of the children in each group using a norm-referenced test would be imperative. The therapist would need to be able to compare the overall performance of each group with their peers as established by the normreferenced tests. Few tests used in physical therapy allow for prediction of outcomes based upon a predictive index that classifies individuals based on what is believed or expected will be their future status.

The original Milani-Comparetti screening tool was developed based on clinical observations of normally and abnormally developing babies over a 5-year period. Certain motor behaviors that were considered to be interrelated and which had a relationship between functional motor achievement and underlying structures of motor behaviors were included in the test. 95 for percent agreement. 98 (hand grasp, body lying supine). Limited data are available for the reliability levels when using the tool for children with varying degrees of developmental disabilities.

Stability is assessed and scored based on observations of the child during the mobility and motor organization subtests. The functional performance subtest is administered by the examiner through an interview with the parents. The subtest includes questions related to self-care, self-management/ mastery, relationships/interactions, and function in the community. The five primary subtests yield scaled scores. Psychometric Characteristics: Norm-referenced for the five primary subtests; the optional subtests are not norm referenced.
