Spinal Cord Injury
The NIH Toolbox® workshop presents updated research and hands-on demonstration of this cutting edge measurement system to assess neurological and behavioral function. The advantages of employing common measures across rehabilitation research and clinical practice will be addressed. Recent findings with the NIH Toolbox in spinal cord injury, stroke and traumatic brain injury will be described. Participants will acquire the basics of computer adaptive testing and modern psychometric approaches and the building blocks for administration of the NIH Toolbox® measures for emotional, cognitive, sensory and motor function via an iPad.
