Recognize characteristics of the Standing Heel-to-Toe test on a Balance Beam. 14. Differentiate between test-retest reliability, interrater reliability, and standard error of measurement. 15. Differentiate between construct-related validity, content-related validity and criterion-related validity. 16. Recognize the function and components of the Rasch Model of Measurement. 17. Differentiate between 5 selected general pediatric standardized tests including age range, domains tested, standard scores used, and time to administer. 18. Recognize 4 ethical considerations in testing. 19. Differentiate between advantages and disadvantages of standardized testing. 20. Recognize the typical development of 6 hand skills in children including reach, grasp, carry, voluntary release, in-hand manipulation and bilateral hand use. 21. Recognize 4 types of sensory integration problems likely to influence hand use including sensory registration problems, tactile hypersensitivity, poor tactile discrimination and dyspraxia. 22. Differentiate between prehensile movements and non-prehensile movements. 23.

Identify The Peabody Developmental Motor Scales sequence pattern for scissors skills. 28. Recognize general motor problems that affect hand skills including inadequate isolation of movements, poorly graded movement, insufficient force, poor timing of movements and disorder in bilateral integration of movements. 29. Differentiate between the biomechanical frame of reference, developmental frame of reference, neurodevelopmental treatment frame of reference and sensory integration frame of reference. 30. List 9 screening activities for hand skills for in-hand manipulation. 31. Recognize the use of supine, side-lying, sitting, and standing positions to elicit specific hand skills. 32.

Chapter 7: Purposes, Processes, and Methods of Evaluation Chapter 8: Use of Standardized Tests in Pediatric Practice Chapter 10: Evaluation and Intervention to Develop Hand Skills

By Jane Case-Smith, EdD, OTR/L, FAOTA, Professor, Division of Occupational Therapy, Ohio State University, Columbus, OH, USA This course utilizes text from a hard back textbook by Jane Case-Smith, EdD, OTR/L, FAOTA, Professor, Division of Occupational Therapy, Ohio State University, Columbus, OH, USA “Occupational Therapy for Children” ©2010. “Occupational Therapy for Children” is a market-leading text that takes an evidence-based look at children at various ages and stages in development, comprehensively addressing both conditions and treatment techniques in all settings. The sixth edition of “Occupational Therapy for Children” maintains its focus on children from infancy to adolescence and gives comprehensive coverage of both conditions and treatment techniques in all settings. Inside you'll discover new author contributions, new research and theories, new techniques, and current trends to keep you in step with the changes in pediatric OT practice. This edition provides an even stronger focus on evidence-based practice with the addition of key research notes and explanations of the evidentiary basis for specific interventions.
