Cognitive and Perceptual Impairment Assessments

Assessment of Motor and Process Skills Arnadottir OT Neurobehavioral Evaluation Allen Cognitive Level Test Rivermead Perceptual Assessment Battery Rivermead Behavioral Memory Test Behavioral Inattention Test Lowenstein OT Cognitive Assessment
Purpose: to examine functional competence in 2 or 3 familiar and chosen BADL or IADL tasks

Method: individual chooses activities to perform from a list of over 60 standardized tasks; therapists observes and documents the motor and process skills that interfere with task performance (16 motor and 20 process skills are scored for each task performed; skills are scored from 1= deficit to 4= competent)

Population: 3 years of age and older, regardless of diagnosis; appropriate for those living with a variety of cognitive and perceptual impairments

Purpose: used to detect underlying neurobehavioral dysfunction

Method: structured observations of BADL and mobility skills; system of error analysis is used to document underlying performance components that have an impact on daily living tasks; scored on a functional independence scale (0= unable to 4= independent) and neurobehavioral specific impairment scale (0= no impairment observed to 4= unable to perform due to dysfunction)

Population: adult population presenting with cognitive/perceptual (neurobehavioral) deficits

Purpose: screening tool to estimate an individual’s cognitive level

Method: person performs 3 leather lacing stitches progressing in complexity

Population: populations with psychiatric disorders, acquired brain injuries, and/or dementia

Purpose: to detect cognitive and perceptual impairments

Method: 16 performance tests that assess form and color constancy, object completion, figure-ground, body image, inattention, and spatial awareness; utilizes deficit-specific tasks in isolation from ADL tasks

Population: 16 years and older who are experiencing visual-perceptual deficits after head injury or stroke

Purpose: offers an initial evaluation of memory function, indicates appropriate treatment areas, and monitors memory skills

Method: contains 11 categories with 9 subtests (each presented with a series of items that the person is required to memorize and recall later in the assessment); scoring is from 0-9= severely impaired memory to 22-24= normal

Population: persons with memory dysfunction

Purpose: examines presence of neglect and its impact on functional task performance
Method: 9 activity based subtests and 6 paper/pen subtests
Population: adults presenting with unilateral neglect
Purpose: measures basic cognitive functions that are prerequisite for managing everyday tasks

Method: 20 subjects in 5 areas: orientation, visual, spatial perception, visualmotor organization, thinking operations; scored from 1= low ability to 4= high ability

Population: persons who have experienced a stroke, TBI, or tumor
