Welcome to the show notes for Episode 6 of the OT Schoolhouse Podcast.
In this episode, we 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 therapists 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.
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?
