Pediatric Evaluation of Disability (PEDI)
6 mos to 7.5 years
can be used with children 7.5+ years if the child's fx abilities fall below those of 7.5y/o w/o disabilities
- Norm and criterion-referenced assessment tool that measures capability and performance in self-care, mobility, and social function.
-Also measures the level of caregiver assistance and it includes a modification scale that assess the impact of the environment on
-detect if a functional deficit or delay is present
-understand how great and in what content area a functional deficit or delay is
-measure progress during intervention program
-be used as an outcome measure for program
School Function Assessment
Asses and monitors functional performance & level of performance to promote participation in school environment. Asses types of support needed for school related tasks. DOES NOT measure academic performance!
T.I.M.E. Toddler & Infant Motor Evaluation
4 months-3-1/2 yrs
Norm-referenced comprehensive assessment of motor abilities
For children who are suspected to have motor delays.
Handwriting w/o Tears
6 and older; K-3rd grade
Criterion referenced, printing assessment tool. It assesses eight hand writing components for capitals, lowercase letters and numbers. They are: memory, orientation, placement, size, start, sequence, control and spacing.
To evaluate and remediate a child's handwriting needs. This pinpoints exactly where the child is having difficulty and what to do to help.
Sensory Processing Measure
Provides a complete picture of children's sensory processing difficulties at school, at home and in the community.
praxis,social participation, visual, auditory, tactile, proprioceptive, vestibular systems
caregiver reports on sensory behaviors/experiences on a likert scale..adol/adult is self report
Brunicks-Oserestsky Test of Motor Proficiency BOT-2
norm-referenced, 9 subtests that measure fine and gross motor skills
Beery Developmental Test of Visual Integration (VMI)
non-motor visual perceptual screening
motor coordination screening
Wide-Range of Visual Motor Activities
Norm-referenced, standardized assessment of visual motor, visual spatial, and fine motor abilities
For children suspected of having a developmental delay in these areas.
Dynamic Occupational Therapy Cognitive Assessment for Children
Criterion referenced assessment - designed to evaluate the cognitive performance of children who are referred to OT as a result of possible developmental, cognitive, or learning difficulties
provides a baseline measurement of cognitive functioning. It can also be used to design an appropriate intervention plan or to determine a child's learning potential

originally designed as a screening tool
some research supports as eval tool
Pediatric Activity Card Sort (PACS)
occupational engagement assessment
measures level of occupational engagement at any point in time.
Can be used as tool to ID occupational interest to set goals and select interventions
