abstract

  • The 66-item Gross Motor Function Measure (GMFM-66) requires a computer program for scoring. The primary purpose of this study was to pilot test the scoring software and examine the perceived clinical utility of the GMFM-66 as judged by 48 pediatric physical therapists. Sixty-one percent of therapists were confident in their ability to interpret the information from the computer program following one hour spent reading the tutorial and interpretation guidelines. Ninety-three percent of respondents perceived the overall clinical utility of the GMFM-66 in terms of administration, scoring and interpretation to be the same or more clinically useful than the GMFM-88.
