In this episode, Jayson and Abby look at two commonly used school-based Occupational therapy assessment tools. Both the Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency, or BOT-2, and the Miller Function & Participation Scales (M-FUN) are standardized testing tools that occupational therapist use to assess fine motor and visual motor skills in children. While they are similar in what they assess, they are very different in how they get their results.
Have a listen if you would like to have these three questions answered:
1. What skills do both the BOT-2 and MFUN assess in a child’s educational capabilities?
2. What are the pros and cons of each assessment tool?
3. How do you decide which assessment tool is best suited for any given school-based OT assessment?
