A workshop to learn the Gross Motor Function Measure (GMFM)

Course Description: This is a one day workshop to prepare pediatric
practitioners to utilize the GMFM. The GMFM was developed at McMaster
University as a criterion referenced observational measure to evaluate
change over time in motor function of children with cerebral palsy and
neuromotor dysfunction. It is a reliable and valid tool to evaluate the
effectiveness of intervention on the motor development of children with
varying severities and types of cerebral palsy and Down Syndrome. The GMFM
has also been found to be useful in evaluating children with head injury
and muscular dystrophy.
