Pediatric Evaluation of Disability Inventory (PEDI)
The Pediatric Evaluation of Disability Inventory (PEDI; Haley, Coster, Ludlow, Haltiwanger, & Andrellos, 1992) is a clinical assessment instrument designed for use with children aged 6 months to 7.5 years who have disabilities resulting in delays or impairments in functional independence. Specific applications of the PEDI include ascertaining the extent of functional delay in children, monitoring progress in rehabilitation and intervention programs, and measuring outcomes in therapeutic and educational programs. Though the instrument also may be given as part of an initial developmental or diagnostic assessment, caution is warranted because extensive validation studies of using the PEDI for this purpose have not been completed.
Administration of the PEDI is typically completed through a 45–60-min structured interview with the parent or primary caregiver, direct assessment by therapists or educators who are familiar with the child, or a combinati ...
