About this issue

The lead article in this issue is the 2014 Knowledge Translation Lecture given by Diane Damiano and Becky Leonard at Combined Sections in Las Vegas. This must read article is rich with examples of how clinicians and researchers can collaborate to advance clinical practice by sharing their knowledge and expertise.


I would also like to draw attention to the articles in this issue that bring measurement matters to the forefront. The paper by Weingarten and Kaplan reports the beginning of their work on validating relevant measures for children receiving physical therapy in our schools. Butz and colleagues’ study of dynamic balance in children leads to information should help therapists select the most appropriate balance tests. And the work by Pitetti and his co-authors demonstrates the use of the Beighton Scale for hypermobility with children with intellectual disabilities. These 3 papers demonstrate our continuing progress in developing, adapting and refining our use of tests and measures.


Finally, I would be remiss if I didn’t draw your attention to the case reports that illustrate our dedication to “going beyond” typical practice by providing opportunities that will long affect the lives of the children who received services: providing adolescents with opportunities to advance their functional capabilities through episodes of intensive intervention. Each of these reports provides evocative questions for you and your colleagues to consider.
