Availability
Please visit this website for more information about the instrument: KIDSCREEN.
Classification
Supplemental: Cerebral Palsy (CP)
Short Description of Instrument
The KIDSCREEN instruments assess children and adolescent subjective health and well-being (health-related quality of life, HRQOL). They were developed as self- report measures applicable for healthy and chronically ill children and adolescents aged from 8 to 18 years.
Comments/Special Instructions
Not specific to children with CP. Limited age range. Does have both proxy/self report versions.
Scoring
The KIDSCREEN-52 instrument measures 10 HRQoL dimensions: Physical (5 items), Psychological Well-being (6 items), Moods and Emotions (7 items), Self-Perception (5 items), Autonomy (5 items), Parent Relations and Home Life (6 items), Social Support and Peers (6 items), School Environment (6 items), Social Acceptance (Bullying) (3 items), Financial Resources (3 items). Scores can be calculated for each of the ten dimensions, t-values and percentages will be available for each country stratified by age, gender and socio-economic status.
Rationale/Justification
Evaluated in only one study using Rasch analysis with data from children with CP. Evidence does support structural validity, construct validity, some evidence has been found for internal consistency and test-retest reliability.
