This study explored how professionals in inter-disciplinary teams perceived the implementation of the World Health Organization's International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health, version for Children and Youth (ICF
-CY) in Swedish habilitation services.
Descriptive longitudinal mixed-methods design.
Following participation in a 2-day in-service training on the ICF
-CY, 113 professionals from 14 interdisciplinary teams described their perceptions of the implementation of the ICF
-CY at 3 consecutive time-points: during in-service training, after 1 year, and after 2.5 years.
Implementation of the ICF
-CY in daily work focused on assessment and habilitation planning and required adaptations of routines and materials. The ICF
-CY was perceived as useful in supporting analyses and in communication about children's needs. Professionals also perceived it as contributing to new perspectives on problems and a sharpened focus on participation.
Professionals indicated that the ICF
-CY enhanced their awareness of families' views of child participation, which corresponded to organizational goals for habilitation services. An implementation finding was a lack of tools fitting the comprehensive ICF
-CY perspective. The study points to the need for ICF
-CY-based assessment and intervention methods focusing on child participation.
