Writing Functional Goals/Outcomes for Our Patients with Severe Pediatric Onset Disabilities

Marcia Stamer, PT, MH, C/NDT
1 Continuing Education Credit(s) Available
Levels IV and V of the Gross Motor Functioning, Manual Abilities, Communication, and Eating and Drinking Classification Systems1-4 classify children with cerebral palsy (CP) whose functional limitations are severely physically impaired. With these systems, clinicians and researchers worldwide have standardized ways to describe children’s functional abilities. These children may be the focus of quantitative and qualitative studies that provides information to all involved with their care. Caregivers, including therapists, may then gain deeper understandings of their unique needs across their lifespans.

Education Level: Intermediate

Learning Outcomes: The reader will be able to
1. State important body systems integrities and impairments to examine and evaluate that support basic life functions.
2. State why norm-referenced testing is useful only as a diagnostic tool and not for evaluating success in intervention or for setting outcomes for intervention.
3. State how a written outcome reflects basic life function of body systems AND relevant individualized function for a child in therapy.
