Pediatric physical therapists have a wide variety of choices for standardized tests and measures. The purpose of this continuing
education course is to guide participants in evidence-based decision making for optimal selection, administration, interpretation,
and sharing results of pediatric outcome measures. Through actual case scenarios, participants will develop skills related to integration
of standardized tests and measures into their practice settings. The ICF framework will be used to guide course discussion and content.
Knowledge translation strategies will be discussed as a means to support sharing the information with professional colleagues, children,
