Measure of early vision use: initial validation with parents of children with cerebral palsy

News item sent from CanChild (Canada) -

The Measure of Early Vision Use (MEVU) is the first assessment tool to describe 'how vision is used' in children with cerebral palsy.

It is a brief and user-friendly tool proposed to complement existing practices such as clinical evaluations of vision.

While MEVU provided a method to quantify basic visual abilities, it is important to note that parents in this study also provided comments to explain their child's score, reflecting that a child’s individuality should remain part of the assessment process.

This study is the first step in an ongoing process of validation and psychometric testing.
