Pediatric Assessments: Developmental | Motor and Visual | Sensory

Beery VMI & Test of Visual Motor Skills Assessment Video

  • (1) Beery Visual Motor Integration
    • 10-15 minutes to administer
    • Supplemental tests if necessary for visual or motor component (are timed)
    • Culture free-looking at shapes
    • ABLE TO COPY
    • Integration: how well motor system is corresponds with what you are seeing
    • Widely used in schools b/c used to determine for eligibility for OT
      • Used as outcome measure for handwriting
  •  (2) Test of Visual Motor Skills
    • 20-30 minutes to administer, untimed
    • Looking for errors- “has there been a change, too long too short, line quality, addition or subtraction of parts, angles-rounded, are shapes rotated or reverse, can you cross the line
      • GROSS DISTORTIONS-motor control, motor coordination, accuracy, motor execution
    •  Adults with Alzheimer’s, Apraxia, stroke, cognitive deficits

Pediatric Assessments: Developmental Video

  • Use norm referenced test when comparing child’s performance with normative sample
  • Use criterion referenced test to provide information on how a child performs on specific tests (functionallevel) – skilled intervention or parent interview
  • Can be used on infants
    • Similarities: begin at 1 month, standardized, involve parents
    • Denver Developmental Screening Tool
      • 1 month-6 years
      • Think Denver, Colorado “Baby Boomer Capital of America”
      • Early identification for delays for children at risk
      • Four areas: personal-social, fine-motor/adaptive, language, gross motor skills
      • Interpretation of scores: normal, abnormal, questionable, unstable
    • Bayley Scales of Infant Development
      • 1 month to 42 months (3.5 years)
      • Bayley = Baseline
      • Attain baseline for intervention by assessing developmental functioning
      • Five areas: Cognitive, Language, Motor, Social-Emotional, Adaptive-Behavior
      • Could be used for a child that is nonverbal

Hand and Upper Extremity | OT Notes

  •   Preschoolers
    • Similarities: Standardized, begin at 2 years + 9 months, preschool assessments; usually both of these are used together
    • (1) First STEP Screening Test
      • 2 yr 9 mo to 6 yr 2 mo
      • FIRST STEP before EVAL is SCREENING
      • Determine a need for comprehensive evaluation for at risk children
      • Used with other assessments
      • Five areas: cognition, communication, physical, social and emotional, adaptive functioning
    • (2) Miller Assessment for Preschoolers (MAP)
      • 2 yr 9 mo to 5 yr 8 mo
      • Lucy Jane Miller wanted to map out a plan to predict school-related problems
      • Focus areas: sensory, motor, cognitive abilities
      • Purpose: Evaluate for mild to moderate developmental delays

Pediatrics Occupational Therapy | Infant Reflexes, Feeding Development, Scissor skills and GM Peds Milestones

  •  Hawaii Early Learning Profile (HELP); NONSTANDARD
    • 0-3 years (at risk or with delays) or 3-6 (with or w/o delays)
    • Hawaii-nature/natural, family vacation, free style
    • Nature -> administered in the child’s natural environment
    • Family -> family centered assessment (takes place in family home and as part of routine
    • Free Style -> non standardized, flexible assessment (play based activities)
    • 6 Areas: cognition, language, gross motor, fine motor, social/emotional, self help
    • Curriculum-referenced test-developmental age range can be approximated
    • Purpose: monitors growth and development and identifies needs
  • Pediatric Evaluation of Disability Inventory (PEDI)
    • 6 months to 7.5 years
    • Disability -> detect functional deficits and assess capabilities to determine developmental area
    • Three areas: self care, mobility, social skills
    • Standardized and behavioral checklist
    • Purpose: identify functional capabilities and deficits, caregiver assistance and modifications
