About the event

The Assisting Hand Assessment (AHA) is now a well-established and frequently used evaluative tool to measure how effectively children with unilateral hand dysfunction actually use their involved hand collaboratively with their well-functioning hand to perform bimanual tasks.

The course teaches the Assisting Hand Assessment, version 5.0 and is conducted in two steps. First, a 2½-day training course include information about the test construct, testing procedure and scoring practice on a range of children from videos. A manual with detailed scoring criteria and a computer based scoring form is provided. To achieve certification, the participant is to complete six additional cases and get satisfactory results. Some of these from videos provided on a web based e-learning platform, and some self-produced AHA play sessions. Individual feedback of these cases is provided.


Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Demonstrate the set up, conduct and video record an Assisting Hand Assessment session and produce reliable scores according to the criteria in the manual
  • Verbalize the concept and construct of the test and its psychometric properties
  • Interpret and communicate the outcome of the test.
