The Assisting Hand Assessment (AHA) is a frequently used evaluative tool to measure how effectively children with unilateral hand dysfunction actually use their involved hand to perform bimanual tasks. The course teaches the Assisting Hand Assessment, version 5.0 and is conducted in two steps. First, a two-and-a-half 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 required to complete six additional cases and achieve satisfactory results. Some of the cases are videos delivered on a web based e-learning platform, and some are self-produced AHA play sessions. Individual feedback of these cases is provided.
