Both Hands Assessment (BoHA) Training Course
Event Date: 01/05/2019
Bobath Scotland is currently in discussion with the Swedish tutors of the Both Hands Assessment (BoHA) training to arrange dates for bringing this course to the UK in 2019.
The Both Hands Assessment (BoHA) is a new standardised, criterion-referenced outcome measure for evaluating hand function in children aged between 18 months – 12 years, who have Bilateral Cerebral Palsy (CP). The BoHA is a further development from the Assisting Hand Assessment (AHA) which has been successfully used for about 10 years with children who have Unilateral Cerebral Palsy.
The assessment can be used with children who have Spastic, Dyskinetic or Ataxic type CP and who are within MACS levels I-III. Similar to the AHA, the BoHA is scored from observation of 15-20 minutes semi-structured play session. TIt measures and describes how effectively children with bilateral CP use both hands together in bimanual activity performance, and quantifies any asymmetry.
Certification for using the BoHA consists of
- A 2½-day course
- Completion of 5 calibration cases with satisfactory results, within 3 months of the course
This course is suitable for OTs and Physiotherapists working with children with Cerebral Palsy.
Course fees are anticipated to be approximately £450. To register your interest in this course, please register your interest by completing the online form, and we will contact you when dates have been finalised.
