Description

COURSE DESCRIPTION

The Mini-Assisting Hand Assessment (MiniAHA) was developed to evaluate the affected upper limb of young children with unilateral cerebral palsy (CP) aged 8-18 months. Like the Assisting Hand Assessment (AHA), the Mini-AHA involves a video-recorded play session using carefully selected toys that provoke bimanual hand use. Twenty object related actions of the affected hand are later scored on a 4-point rating scale.

The course teaches the reliable use of the Mini-AHA assessment in three steps:

  1. The first step involves a three-day online workshop where participants will learn about the constructs underlying the Mini-AHA, how to score the test items and how to conduct the test procedures including the play session. There will also be opportunities to practice scoring children. Handouts, a Mini-AHA manual with detailed scoring criteria and a computer based scoring form will be provided.
  2. The second next step is to complete further independent scoring of Mini-AHA assessments, with feedback provided regarding your results.
  3. The third step involves participants creating their own test kit according to instructions given during the course, and then conducting a Mini-AHA play session. Feedback on the selected toys and your play session will be provided.
