Literature on outcome measures in children has focused almost exclusively on capacity-based assessments that generally lack robust environmental context or demonstrate issues with ambulayion. Showing of 30 extracted citations. Overall, this study prompts a revisiting of the topic of informed decision making for therapists, when selecting functional outcome measures.
