Reliability and validity of the Dutch pediatric Voice Handicap Index.

Abstract The pediatric voice handicap index (pVHI) has been developed to provide a better insight into the parents' perception of their child's voice related quality of life. The purpose of the present study was to validate the Dutch pVHI by evaluating its internal consistency and reliability. Furthermore, we determined the optimal cut-off point for a normal pVHI score.

AB  - INTRODUCTION: The pediatric voice handicap index (pVHI) has been developed to
      provide a better insight into the parents' perception of their child's voice
      related quality of life. The purpose of the present study was to validate the
      Dutch pVHI by evaluating its internal consistency and reliability. Furthermore,
      we determined the optimal cut-off point for a normal pVHI score. METHODS: All
      items of the English pVHI were translated into Dutch. Parents of children in our 
      dysphonic and control group were asked to fill out the questionnaire. For the
      test re-test analysis we used a different study group who filled out the pVHI
      twice as part of a large follow up study. Internal consistency was analyzed
      through Cronbach's alpha coefficient. The test-retest reliability was assessed by
      determining Pearson's correlation coefficient. Mann-Whitney test was used to
      compare the scores of the questionnaire of the control group with the dysphonic
      group. By calculating receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves, sensitivity
      and specificity we were able to set a cut-off point. RESULTS: We obtained data
      from 122 asymptomatic children and from 79 dysphonic children. The scores of the 
      questionnaire significantly differed between both groups. The internal
      consistency showed an overall Cronbach alpha coefficient of 0.96 and an excellent
      test-retest reliability of the total pVHI questionnaire with a Pearson's
      correlation coefficient of 0.90. A cut-off point for the total pVHI questionnaire
      was set at 7 points with a specificity of 85% and sensitivity of 100%. A cut-off 
      point for the VAS score was set at 13 with a specificity of 93% and sensitivity
      of 97%. CONCLUSIONS: The Dutch pVHI is a valid and reliable tool for the
      assessment of children with voice problems. By setting a cut-off point for the
      score of the total pVHI questionnaire of 7 points and the VAS score of 13, the
      pVHI might be used as a screening tool to assess dysphonic complaints and the
      pVHI might be a useful and complementary tool to identify children with
      dysphonia.
