Accurately evaluate functional disabilities with score forms and an easy-to-understand manual

Assess key functional capabilities and performance in children ages six months to seven yearswith this practical resource. Use it to evaluate older children whose functional abilities are lower than those of seven-year-olds without disabilities. Pediatric Evaluation of Disability Inventory(PEDI) lets you measure both capability and performance by observing—

  • Self-care
  • Mobility
  • Social function

To appraise a child correctly, determine functional skills in which mastery and competence are demonstrated. PEDI helps you identify treatment progress and recommends areas of new functional intervention. Also, use it to identify functional deficits and establish treatment plans.

Since PEDI is standardized on a normative sample, you can calculate both standard and scaled performance scores. Record your scores in the booklet, which also contains a summary score sheet.

To better your grasp of PEDI, the manual offers helpful information on—

  • Administration guidelines
  • Scoring criteria
  • Easy-to-follow examples
  • Instrument development and validation
  • Clinical trial data
