OT evaluation reports that the girl needs moderate assistance with grooming, dressing, and transfers. In order to promote the girls goal of self-dressing, what would be the most useful intervention?
A) Introduce adaptive equipment such as a long handed reacher, shoe horn, and button hook
B) Provide the girl with a pictured checklist in order to remember the sequential order
C) Provide caregiver training in order to establish a consistent routine.
D) Allow extra time for dressing so the girl does not feel rushed

The picture dressing cards will refresh the child’s memory prior to attempting the task. Since the child has memory deficits, the sequencing task will need to be completed prior to each dressing session until the child begins to retain the steps of the task.
