General Description

The WWP is a 27 items inventory completed by parents, aimed at evaluating the child’s activity level in a family context, in various situations of daily life (e.g., during meals, watching television, while playing, in activities abroad). The total result is obtained by adding directly the scores of all the items and represents a general measure of the child’s activity level.
