Health-related quality of life in children with dysphonia and validation of the French Pediatric Voice Handicap Index.

Abstract voice disorders are common in the pediatric population and can negatively affect children's quality of life. The pediatric voice handicap Index (pVHI) is a valid instrument to assess parental perception of their children voice but it is not translated into French language. The aim of the present study was to adapt a French version of the pVHI and to evaluate its psychometric properties including construct validity, reliability, and some aspects of external validity.

AB  - OBJECTIVE: voice disorders are common in the pediatric population and can
      negatively affect children's quality of life. The pediatric voice handicap Index 
      (pVHI) is a valid instrument to assess parental perception of their children
      voice but it is not translated into French language. The aim of the present study
      was to adapt a French version of the pVHI and to evaluate its psychometric
      properties including construct validity, reliability, and some aspects of
      external validity. PATIENTS AND METHOD: we performed a cross sectional study
      including 32 dysphonic children and 60 children with no history of voice problems
      between 3 and 12 years of age. The original pVHI was translated into French
      language according to forward-backward rules and then administered to parents or 
      caregivers. Construct validity and internal consistency were explored using
      confirmatory factor analysis and Cronbach's alpha. The questionnaire was filled
      twice to assess test-retest reliability using the intra-class correlation
      coefficient. The external validity was explored by comparing the French pVHI
      total and subscales scores between dysphonic and asymptomatic children.
      Correlations between the French pVHI and both the perceptual GRBAS scale and the 
      health-related quality of life (HRQOL) survey "Vecu et Sante Percu de
      l'Adolescent et de l'Enfant" (VSP-Ap) were also performed. RESULTS: the structure
      of the French pVHI showed a good fit with excellent reliability (alpha = 0.929)
      and high test-retest reliability. Significant differences were found between the 
      group of dysphonic children and the control group (p < 0.001). The French pVHI
      scores were positively correlated to all parameters of the GRBAS scale (p <
      0.05). Significant negative correlations were found between the Functional domain
      of the pVHI and various domains of the VSP-Ap as Leisure Activities, Schooling
      and Sentimental Relationship (p < 0.05). CONCLUSION: the French pVHI is
      considered to be a valid and reliable instrument to assess voice-related quality 
      of life in children with voice disorder. We recommend its use in the
      multidimensional protocols for assessing voice disorder in the pediatric
      population.
