Outils spécifiques en ergothérapie auprès d’enfants dyspraxiques

Abstract : Introduction: Dyspraxic children have many difficulties in carrying out their daily life activities due to their clumsiness and difficulties in automatizing voluntary gestures.The occupational therapist intervenes to help with these difficulties and particularly with handwriting, which is the first request for his intervention. A request for a new tool for a comprehensive analysis of handwriting was made byseveral occupational therapists.The aim of this study was therefore to build, with the help of qualified occupational therapists, a comprehensive analysis tool targetting handwriting with dyspraxic children. Method: Using a Delphi method, three different e-mails including three surveys and summaries of the results were sent to 18 occupational therapists working with dyspraxic children. Each survey proposed items to be included in the tool and required a 70% expert consensus to validate or exclude the items. The 3 rounds allowed the ambiguous items to be discussed and gave the experts the opportunity to reposition themselves. Results: In the first round on the 55 items proposed 6 were rejected, 39 were validated but 3 were reworded and 13 new items were proposed by the experts. In the second round on the 32 items questioned, 17 were accepted, 5 were reworded, and 10 excluded. In the last round on the 16 last questioned items 6 were accepted and 10 were refused and so withdrawn. Conclusion: In the end 56 items were integrated into the tool out of the 68 shared. Now it is necessary to continue this study in order to allow the validation and publication of the tool that xas created.
