Fine Motor Assessment – The Basics
Assessing a client with fine motor difficulties can be overwhelming, with multiple aspects to consider and observe all at once! This tends to leave us feeling lost in our findings and therefore, within our intervention approach, struggling to know where to begin and what to prioritise. This webinar is aimed at helping therapists gain a basic understanding regarding the many aspects to consider, during a fine motor assessment; from a non standardised and standardised assessment perspective, then utilise this information to create client centred, functional goals.
This webinar does not cover intervention approaches for different fine motor barriers, but will help the clinician gain increased confidence with their assessment, which in turn will help with selecting the appropriate intervention approach, individual to each client’s needs and goals.
- To gain a basic understanding regarding the different aspects to consider and improve confidence during fine motor assessments
- To gain a basic understanding regarding the identification of barriers and limitations sought from the assessment, to create client centred, functional goals
- To reduce overwhelm when applying findings from your assessment, to select the appropriate intervention approach and gain positive outcomes for the client, in relation to function
