DE BRUIN, Alet. Evaluation of Vestibular proprioceptive (VPP) functioning in children: Identification of relevant test items. S. Afr. j. occup. ther. [online]. 2008, vol.38, n.3, pp.14-17. ISSN 2310-3833.

study was undertaken in the absence of a standardised test to evaluate vestibular proprioceptive processing (VPP). By a process of test development, 18 appropriately difficult and clearly discriminatory test items were identified. These test items can now be used as a basis to assemble and standardise a VPP test.

Keywords : Vestibular proprioceptive processing; sensory integration; test development; evaluation.
