s-HAI - Screening Hand Assessment for Infants

  • The s-HAI is a tool that can be used for an initial screening) of infants to identify those at high risk of unilateral cerebral palsy (CP) between 3.5-12 months of age.
  • The s-HAI is based on the Hand Assessment for Infants (HAI) and consists of a 5-minute, video recorded, play session with a set-up of 6 items.
  • The s-HAI course is based on self-learning that allows you to take the course at your own pace during a 3-month period. In total it will take about 10-15 hours to complete the course.
  • After completed the training, you will be able to score s-HAI recordings of your own patients and identify infants with high risk of unilateral CP based on the results of the scoring.
  • Who can apply for the course? Health professionals, such as occupational therapists, physiotherapists, doctors, and researchers in the field of early detection and early intervention. Some previous experience of work with infants is desirable.
