New tool measures children's own health perceptions

perceptions of their children's health. Illustrations and multiple-choice questions are used in the CHIP-CE to assess children's well-being, comfort, risk avoidance, resilience, and achievement. The CHIP-CE child report form and parent report form were developed by working with children, parents and other experts.

The CHIP assessment tools were developed and tested over a 12-year period. Together, they provide the means to assess the health of children from their early school years through adolescence, using a consistent model of health and many of the same questions. The CHIP instruments, address the need for methods to study life transitions and other influences on the health of youth, which is known to be an important factor in successful school achievement and transition to adu
