Promoting Socially Valid Outcomes for Individuals With Severe Disabilities
This program includes two recordings that discuss the concept of social validity as a way to promote meaningful outcomes for individuals with severe disabilities. Participants will explore how social validity assessments could provide a tool kit for developing effective and sustainable treatments. Participants will learn strategies for collaborative and person-centered assessment, goal setting, and intervention practices that promote socially valid outcomes for this client base by including the input of all stakeholders—including practitioners across professions as well as the individual him- or herself. These recordings originally appeared in the June 2014 online conference "Improving Communication of People With Severe Disabilities: Interprofessional Strategies."
You will be able to:
- articulate the multiple dimensions of social validity
- explain why assessing social validity is important
- identify at least three assessment tools that can help determine and measure socially valid outcomes and can be used by multiple disciplines
- define and write socially valid physical therapy and communication goals/outcomes
- design social validity assessments that provide useful information
