Validity of Short Gravitational Insecurity Assessment among Indian Children
Ganapathy Sankar U., Prema.A
The purpose of this study was to examine validity of Short Gravitational Insecurity (SGI) assessment among Indian Children.Short Gravitational Insecurity assessment consists of 5 items with two behavioural categories. The Short Gravitational Insecurity Assessment (SGI) and movement sensitivity section of Short Sensory Profile was administered to 50 children with Gravitational Insecurity to establish convergent validity of SGI. Two hundred children with GI and matched typically developing children participated to examine discriminant validity of SGI. The results revealed that there was moderate correlation between SGI and movement sensitivity section of SSP. Further, there was statistically significant difference in performances between GI and typically developing children. The present study concluded that convergent validity and discriminant validity of SGI was good. It can be used as assessment tool as well as outcome measure to evaluate effectiveness of occupational therapy intervention program.
