SHINE Intensive Therapy Program: Individual Goal Attainment Scale (GAS) (N = 19)

2017 - 2019

The Shine (Structured High Intensity Neuromotor Episode) Program is a multi-disciplinary intensive therapy program that serves children with a variety of diagnoses aged 2-14 years. This treatment model utilizes a short burst treatment plan as an alternative to a minimal frequency, long duration therapy plan. Children are seen for 12 sessions over 4-6 weeks, depending on age and tolerance.

Between 2017 and 2019, 19 patients were seen for individual intensive therapy and 17 patients were seen in a group format. 36 patients completed both the individual intensive therapy program and the group format. In addition to standardized assessments, patients received pre and post assessments utilizing the Goal Attainment Scale (GAS). The GAS is a tool to measure numerical change in patient/caregiver-driven functional goals using a 5-point scale, paired with a written description of change. The GAS uses linear increments with (-2) representing baseline data (no progress), (-1) representing some progress, (0) representing attainment of goal, (+1) representing more progress than expected, and (+2) representing much more progress than expected.

Of 36 patients seen between 2017 and 2019, 366 goals were established between OT, PT, and SLT, and 77 percent of the goals were met or exceeded.

OT= occupational therapy

PT= physical therapy

SLT= speech language therapy
