For whom

This instruction course is aimed at small groups of paediatric occupational therapists/researchers (up to four people) who work at a higher education institution and would like to translate the WRITIC-assessment into their own language and implement it in their country.

The instruction course is a mandatory part of the process of translation and implementation of the WRITIC-assessment in your country. At the start of this process, a license agreement will be drawn up in consultation with the developers of the WRITIC-assessment (Dr Margo van Hartingsveldt and Liesbeth de Vries MSc OT). We are more than open to collaborating on international projects regarding the implementation of the WRITIC-assessment. Please contact us if you are interested in the WRITIC for your country.
