*A neuropsychological test of manual dexterity and bimanual coordination.
*Involves 2 different abilities: gross movements of arms, hands, fingers, and fine motor extremity. This is also called "fingerprint" dexterity.
*Peboard is a rectangular board with 2 sets of 25 holes running vertically and 4 concave cups at the top. Small metal pegs are placed in the cup on the side being tested, with clients asked to remove the pegs and place them vertically in the holes as rapidly as possible. The number of pegs placed in 30 seconds is scored.
*Can be used with children (6-12), adolescents (13-17), adults (18-64), and elderly (65+)
*Board also contains 20 collars in one cup and 40 washers in another cup as well as the pegs
*Test right hand for 30 seconds, left hand for 30 seconds, both hands for 30 seconds (pairs not individual), right+left hands (mathematical sum), and assembly 60 seconds; total time is less than 5 minutes.
*Consists of 2 components: TOA (Task Oriented Assessment) and SIS (Social Interaction Scale)
*TOA-utilized five tasks in which 12 functional parameters in cognitive, performance, and affective areas are rated. Observations about specific cognitive and neuropsychological functioning are made during each task. Activities included in TOA include sorting shells by size, shape, and color; a money and marketing activity; drawing a home plan; block design; and drawing a person doing something. TOA is testing memory for written/oral instructions, organization of time and materials, attention span, evidence of thought disorder, ability to abstract, motivation and compliance, frustration tolerance, self-confidence, and general affective and behavioral impression.
*SIS-measures the level of social competency through assessment of seven areas of social functioning via observation in five different social situations. These include one to one interview, mealtime, unstructured group setting, structured group activity, structured oral group. SIS tests verbal communication, psychomotor behavior, socially appropriate behavior, response to authority figures, independence/dependence, ability to work with others, and participation in groups or program activities.
*Used in inpatient and outpatient settings to evaluate functional performance of psychiatric, brain injured, geriatric, or developmentally disabled adults as well as adolescents in treatment or special education settings
*Measures gross, fine, and total-motor skills
*Used with children from birth to 5 years with or without developmental delay
*Can be completed in 45-60 minutes; subtests may take 20-30 minutes. Subtests include reflexes, stationary, locomotion, object manipulation, grasping, and visual-motor integration
*Child's age determines which subtest to start

*Evaluates and assesses delays, disabilities, giftedness, and other exceptionalities
*Used to design functional intervention goals, write IFSPs and IEPs, and monitor progress for children with disabilities
*Test of motor proficiency for children 4-21 years old
