Various tools are used to assess the paediatric population, from functional assessments to specific outcome measures. Assessing a child’s functional movement patterns provides information on their strength, range of motion, tone and coordination. Standardised assessment tools offer more detail on specific components and enable comparisons with age-matched norms. This course explores how to assess a child using functional movements and introduces three commonly used standardised outcome measures.

Featured reviews
It was a well-laid-out course, with good assessment structuring ideas and standardized test outcomes. Especially great for therapists returning to treating children after having a different client base or being on leave for a while.

This course builds confidence in handling motor-related issues in children. It makes one be on top of his game. It authenticates the professionalism that one has.
