The BOT-2 is a unique evaluation tool because it actually includes motor and manipulation tasks. It’s a must-have for every school district and clinic, but too expensive for therapists to purchase on their own.
It can be difficult to explain standardized test scores to parents. I’ve created a blog post that explains it, along with a free printable that you can use as a visual when going over your test results. Check it out here.
Personally, I use the BOT-2 often. But just like any other assessment, it’s only one piece of the puzzle. Your clinical observation skills will give you just as much information as a standardized score. AND the BOT-2 doesn’t look at visual perceptual skills, so you may want to use it along with a visual perceptual assessment.
Quick and easy card activities and progress sheets to work on motor skills.
A 25-page printable packet that provides hours of fun manipulation tasks! Perfect for parents, teachers, and therapists! Use the progress monitoring sheets to easily keep track of your child’s goals.
Hi Miss Jaime,
It might be helpful to include additional information on the scoring interpretation of the BOT-2 since it uses a different mean and standard deviation that most of the other standardized assessment.
