  1. Groups of vertical cells on a gray background represent one retained latent factor; (ii) Communalities (Com.) and fsw values extracted from the CFA, with the average results presented in terms of a Likert (LK) scale, and the corresponding profile of functionality (PF).
  2. *Extraction Method: Principal component analysis.
  3. Rotation Method: Varimax with Kaiser normalization.
  4. Rotation converged in seven iterations.
  5. **Qualitative classification adopted from Marôco20.
  6. ***Labeled according to the mean LK scale score for each code, after correspondence with the ICF scale of profiles was confirmed.
