Lucy Jane Miller, PhD, OTR and Sarah A. Schoen, PhD, OTR explain how assessments are selected for identification, treatment planning and measuring progress of children with developmental concerns.
This three-part series is the first of many to come that focus on the flow from assessment to development of a treatment plan. Each series will highlight an assessment tool commonly used in clinic and school settings. Although intended primarily for occupational therapists, content may be beneficial to other professionals, including psychologists, physical therapists, and other childhood intervention specialists. This first series focuses on the M-FUN (Miller Function and Participation Scales).
