IC25: NIH Toolbox: Innovative Assessments for Rehab Practice and Research
IC25: LIVE Discussion: NIH Toolbox: Innovative Assessments for Rehab Practice and Research (843816)
Wednesday, October 21, 2020
11:30 AM – 12:30 PM EST
The NIH Toolbox provides scores that are comparable across a broad range of age and ability levels, making it uniquely suited for use in lifespan assessment and evaluation of disorders covering an extensive spectrum of severity. Comprised of four 30-minute batteries (Cognition, Motor, Emotion, Sensation), the core suite of measures can be administered in two hours or less. All measures were evaluated for accessibility and cultural and ethnic applicability, and have demonstrated good reliability and validity. The NIH Toolbox was normed using a US Census matched sample of 4,859 participants (English and Spanish speaking), ages 3-85. Through this interactive course, we discuss the science behind the NIH Toolbox as well as how to select, administer, score, and interpret NIH Toolbox measures. Participants will then be given hands-on experience using the NIH Toolbox iPad app on iPads provided by us. We welcome questions and discussion during the workshop.
