Description

COURSE DESCRIPTION

The Assisting Hand Assessment (AHA) is a Rasch-based instrument that measures and describes the effectiveness with which a child who has unilateral disability makes use of their affected hand (assisting hand) during bimanual activities. The AHA is a standardised criterion-referenced test that is valid, reliable and sensitive to change. The test is intended for children with unilateral cerebral palsy and brachial plexus injuries aged between 18 months and 18 years.

The course teaches the Assisting Hand Assessment, version 5.0 and is conducted in two steps. First, a 2-day training course includes information about the test construct, testing procedure and scoring practice on a range of children from videos. A manual with detailed scoring criteria and a computer-based scoring form is provided. To achieve certification, the participant is to complete six additional cases and achieve satisfactory results. These are scored from videos provided on a web-based e-learning platform. Participants are also required to videotape 3 of their own play sessions and complete a self reflection process. The self-reflection forms will be assessed as part of the certification procedure.

To be able to perform the self-produced AHA assessment, you will need access to an AHA test kit and at least 3 children with unilateral upper limb impairment. The AHA test kit for children between 18 months and 18 years with specific toys, and/or the new board game for teenagers can be ordered from Handfast Inc, at the course or later during the certification procedure at a cost of approximately £370 (dependent of the currency conversion) + shipping costs.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

1. Demonstrate the setup, conduct and video record an Assisting Hand Assessment session.
2. Produce reliable scores according to the criteria in the manual (AHA Version 5.0)
3. Verbalize the concept and construct of the test and its psychometric properties.
4. Interpret and communicate the outcome of the test.
