16 sessions total. Provided by study PT twice weekly for 8 weeks.
16 sessions total. Provided by study PT twice weekly for a period of 8 weeks
- Gross Motor Function Measure (GMFM-66) [ Time Frame: Baseline, 8 weeks ]Change from baseline in motor function on Gross Motor Function Measure (GMFM-66) at week 8
- Canadian Occupational Performance Measure (COPM) [ Time Frame: Baseline, 8 weeks ]Change from baseline in targeted goal abilities and satisfaction with performance as measured by the Canadian Occupational Performance Measure at week 8
- Goal Attainment Scale (GAS) [ Time Frame: Baseline, 8 weeks ]Change from baseline in targeted goal abilities as measured by Goal Attainment Scaling (GAS) at week 8. Three to five individualized walking-based activity/participation goals are set with child/parent/treating PT at baseline. Goal achievement level (score of -2 to+2) evaluated by treating PT with child/parent input at post-intervention assessment. GAS outcome (achievement) is measured by a standardized T-score that is a summary score(calculated from individual goal -2 to +2 scores) for the child's set of goals . Goal accomplishment at the targeted level (averaged across the goal set) is reflected by a T score = 50.0 + 5 with range of scores from ~ 25 to 85.
- Gait speed (10 minute fastest walk test ) [ Time Frame: Baseline, 8 weeks ]Change from baseline in Gait Speed (10 minute fastest walk test) at week 8
- Observational Gait Scale [ Time Frame: Baseline, 8 weeks ]
Change from baseline in Gait quality as measured on an observational gait scale at week 8.
Gait pattern evaluated via an observational 25-item scale (Total score /100 with higher scores indicating better pattern) that was constructed and validated in cerebral palsy by CoPI Wright at the research facility. Rating is from video of child's walking along a 7 metre distance.
- The Pediatric Evaluation of Disability Inventory (PEDI-CAT) [ Time Frame: Baseline, 8 weeks ]Change from baseline in PEDI-CAT at week 8.
- Movement Ability Self-efficacy Questionnaire (MASQ) [ Time Frame: Baseline, week 8 ]Change from baseline in MASQ at week 8
- Gait Kinematics (measured on the GaitRite evaluation system) [ Time Frame: Baseline, week 8 ]Change from baseline in gait kinematics as measured on the GaitRite evaluation system at week 8
- Feasibility indicator: Recruitment Rate [ Time Frame: Monthly over 12 months through study completion ]Recruitment rate (%) as measured by: # of participants enrolled / # of participants screened and eligible
- Feasibility indicator: Retention Rate [ Time Frame: Monthly over 12 months through study completion ]Retention rate (%) as measured by: # of participants completing both baseline and follow-up assessment / total # of participants
- Feasibility indicator: Protocol Adherence [ Time Frame: Monthly over 12 months through study completion ]Protocol adherence (%) as measured by: Number of sessions completed / 16 possible sessions
- Motor Learning Strategies Rating Instrument (MLSRI) [ Time Frame: Week 2-3, Week 6-7 ]Compare motor learning strategy (MLS) use in LOK and PT to explore how LOK use may affect motor skill acquisition post-ABI.
