About the Pediatric Rehabilitation Intervention Measure of Engagement –Observation version
The Pediatric Rehabilitation Intervention Measure of Engagement - Observation version (PRIME-O) captures observations of engagement in an intervention session, with engagement defined as active involvement and investment (King et al., 2014). The 10-item PRIME-O is an observer-rated measure that captures observable signs of engagement of (a) the client (i.e., interest and enthusiasm, use of strengths-based language, openness to what is being said/done, overall comfort and confidence in engaging with the service provider), (b) the service provider (i.e., interest and enthusiasm, use of strengths-based language, overall comfort and confidence in engaging the client, listening/communication behaviors), and (c) the client-provider interaction [i.e., overall warmth of the interaction (rapport), collaborative nature of the interaction]. The PRIME-O provides a multifaceted view of affective, cognitive, and behavioral components of engagement in pediatric rehabilitation.
