For school-based occupational therapists, connecting assessment results, educational need, and intervention can be a challenge. This 2-hour webinar is appropriate for occupational therapists or those needing a brush-up on school-based assessment. Using SCHOODLES School Fine Motor Assessment, we’ll focus on how to systematically conduct the essential non-standardized portion of an occupational therapy evaluation and gain applicable meaning from observations. Participants learn how to clearly identify, analyze, and describe fine motor areas of need related to school performance. We also review how to pull educationally appropriate goals from our findings.
- Define the term “educational need” as it refers to school-based Occupational Therapy and assessment.
- Understand the importance of including a thorough, systematic observation in addition to standardized tests in occupational therapy evaluations.
- List at least four supporting skills needed to produce functional fine motor outcomes in the classroom.
- List at least three observations that can be made during modified manual muscle testing.
- Understand the steps needed to connect classroom performance, assessment results, and educationally relevant goals.
