About This Product
BY SHARON KENMOTSU AND KATY TRESSLER
Here’s an occupational therapy assessment tool that lives up to its name. EASY-OT is a collection of summary forms, informal checklists, and resource materials for guiding evaluations, documenting results, and planning interventions. There are no norms associated with EASY-OT, but it does provide space to record results from the 14 most commonly used standardized tests. Because it’s provided on an unlimited-use CD, you can use EASY-OT repeatedly, printing out forms and generating reports as needed.
EASY-OT includes four Assessment Forms: Pre-K–2nd Grade; Grades 3–8; Grades 9–12; and Low Functioning (for students with developmental or physical disabilities). Each form assesses school-related skills in five areas:
In addition, 18 templates help you evaluate preprinting, writing, coloring, cutting, and other skills. And four supplementary forms offer useful assessment options:
- Screening Form—A time-saving checklist that helps determine the need for a complete EASY-OT assessment
- Annual Report Form—A systematic way to document progress, track eligibility for services, and organize IEP considerations
- Sensory Processing Skills Addendum—A checklist evaluating the impact of sensory processing skills on school performance
- Life Skills Addendum—A vocational/life skills checklist that completes the picture of student functioning
Whether you choose computer administration or print out the forms, addenda, and templates for paper-and-pencil administration, you’ll use the EASY-OT again and again.
