Let’s delve into a comprehensive guide to some of the most frequently used tools in our OT arsenal.

What are occupational therapy assessments?

Occupational therapy assessments are specific tools and methods occupational therapists use to evaluate a client’s occupational performance. 

They help the therapist gain a comprehensive understanding of the client’s strengths, challenges, and overall ability to engage in meaningful activities and participate in daily life. These assessments do more than just quantify a client’s abilities. They:

  • Uncover client strengths and challenges: Pinpoint specific areas where a client excels and where they may face difficulties.
  • Drive client-centered goals: Facilitate collaborative goal-setting that aligns with a client’s values and priorities.
  • Track progress: Measure changes in function and participation over time, demonstrating the effectiveness of OT interventions.
  • Guide evidence-based practice: Provide data to support clinical decision-making and the selection of appropriate interventions.

Occupational therapists across various settings utilize assessments, including hospitals, rehabilitation centers, schools, community clinics, and private practices. They work with clients of all ages, from infants to older adults, with diverse needs and conditions.
