Abstract

The evaluation of minors within welfare contest requires an adequate multidisciplinaryand interdisciplinary approach to clinical and psycho-social order. There are manyevaluation’s instruments, but in the medico legal context particularly useful is theevaluation according to the guidelines of the World Health Organization, in the recentcodification ICF, International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health [1]version YC (Children and Youth) [2].The use of minor measurement according to ICF-CY is here reported in a child’s healthexperience with neuropsychiatric disorders. The system ICF-CY offers a revolutionarynew model that relates biological, psychological and social factors adopting a newterminology in positive value for health description: activity limitation (social perspec-tive of functioning) replaces term of disability, restriction of participation (individualperspective of the functioning) replaces term handicap: in that context the ICF-CY allowsan adequate diagnostic formulation for commissions operating assessment under law104/92. This new model suggests too an international language that adopt criterion ofobjectivity and interobserver reproducibility and provides the social health economicimpact of limitations and restrictions, for the application of equity and distributivejustice in the public resources use. The ICF classification unit is not a diagnosis for achild, but a profile of his functioning: it includes new codes to describe and document thechildren development characteristics, bodily functions, activities and participation up to18 years age; it also aims to describe nature and gravity of functioning limitations andenvironmental factors. The ICF crucial points are the family context, developmentaldelay, participation and environmental role
