Feasibility and usefulness as a common language and frame of reference for practice
Disability and Rehabilitation, 2010, Volume 32 (Supplement 1), Seite s125-s38, London: Informa Healthcare, ISSN: 0963-8288 (Print); 1464-5165 (Online)
Early childhood intervention and habilitation services for children with disabilities operate on an interdisciplinary basis. It requires a common language between professionals, and a shared framework for intervention goals and intervention implementation. The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) and the version for children and youth (ICF-CY) may serve as this common framework and language.
This overview of studies implemented by our research group is based on three research questions:
- Do the ICF-CY conceptual model have a valid content and is it logically coherent when investigated empirically?
- Is the ICF-CY classification useful for documenting child characteristics in services?
- What difficulties and benefits are related to using ICF-CY model as a basis for intervention when it is implemented in services?
A series of studies, undertaken by the CHILD researchers are analysed. The analysis is based on data sets from published studies or master theses.
Results and conclusion show that the ICF-CY has a useful content and is logically coherent on model level. Professionals find it useful for documenting children's body functions and activities. Guidelines for separating activity and participation are needed. ICF-CY is a complex classification, implementing it in services is a long-term project.
