Goal Attainment Scaling Made Easy With an App: GOALed.

Pediatr Phys Ther 2019 04;31(2):225-230

TIRR Memorial Hermann (Dr E. Gaffney), Houston, Texas; University of Oklahoma (Mr K. Gaffney), Norman, Oklahoma; Dorchester County School District Two (Dr Bartleson), Summerville, South Carolina; Medical University of South Carolina (Drs E. Gaffney and Dodds), Charleston, South Carolina.

Pediatric physical therapists use Goal Attainment Scaling (GAS) in a variety of clinical settings to objectively measure change in individual-, patient- and family-centered goals. Creating, recording, storing, scoring, and interpreting GAS goals have been manually completed. Recently developed GOALed, a GAS app, provides an improved, streamlined approach. Read More

Daily and Weekly Rehabilitation Delivery for Young Children With Gross Motor Delay: A Randomized Clinical Trial Protocol (the DRIVE Study).

Pediatr Phys Ther 2019 04;31(2):217-224

Nationwide Children's Hospital (Drs Ferrante, Hendershot, Baranet, Maitre, and Lo), Columbus, Ohio; The Ohio State University (Drs Barbosa, Pan, and Heathcock), Columbus, Ohio; Kettering College (Dr Carey), Kettering, Ohio.

Purpose: The proposed project tests the principle that frequency of rehabilitation is an important regulator of therapeutic response in infants.

Methods: We will randomize 75 infants with cerebral palsy, 6 to 24 months of age and/or Gross Motor Function Classification System levels III to V (higher severity), to determine the short-term and long-term effects of 3 dosing protocols consisting of an identical number of 2-hour sessions of the same motor learning-based therapy applied over a different total number of calendar weeks.

Results And Conclusions: The results will inform clinicians, families, and scientists about dosing and will provide needed recommendations for frequency of rehabilitation to optimize motor function and development of young children with cerebral palsy. Read More

Relationship Between Torticollis and Gastroesophageal Reflux Disorder in Infants.

Pediatr Phys Ther 2019 04;31(2):142-147

Therapy Services, Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital for Rehabilitation, and Quantitative Health Sciences Department, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, Ohio.

Purpose: To examine safety and efficacy of exercise training (ET) for juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) to improve physical fitness, pain, functional capability, and quality of life.

Methods: Ovid Medline, PubMed, CINAHL, PEDro, and Web of Science were searched from 1995 to April 2018 to find English-language articles examining effects of ET in JIA, ages 4 to 21 years. Quality of evidence/strength of clinical recommendations were assessed using the Cochrane GRADE (Grading of Recommendations, Assessment, Development and Evaluation) system. Read More
