Collecting disability data on children is even more complex as children naturally change from being fully functionally dependent from early infancy to being fully independent in late adolescence. The first two decades of life are characterized by rapid growth and significant changes in the physical, social and psychological development of children and youth (WHO, 2007b). The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health for Children and Youth (ICF-CY) is derived from the ICF and is designed to record the characteristics of the developing child and the influence of its surrounding environment. The ICF-CY was published by the WHO in 2007 and uses a common language and terminology for recording problems involving functions and structures of the body, activity limitations and participation restrictions, manifested in infancy, childhood and adolescence and relevant environmental factors (WHO, 2007b).

WHO (2007b). International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health for Children and Youth (ICF-CY), Geneva: WHO.

Dear Dr. Mel, may I know more about the nature of CSO service in HK? I wonder who will help offenders to reintegrate into the community.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
