Melinda Randall is a paediatric occupational therapist who has worked with children with neurological impairment at The Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne since 1985.
Melinda is interested in evaluating upper limb treatment outcomes in children with cerebral palsy and has completed her doctoral studies on The Melbourne Assessment of Unilateral Upper Limb Function.
Her studies have resulted in refinements to the scaling of the tool and extending the scale to include children aged from 2.5 years. This has resulted in the development of a revised version of the tool, titled The Melbourne Assessment 2: a test of unilateral upper limb function.
Melinda’s current work is on a research project investigating the association between extent and timing of brain injury and functional abilities of children with cerebral palsy. She also works clinically with children with complex movement disorders.
