Body scheme disorders
body scheme disorder that results in diminished awareness of body structure & failure to recognize body parts on one's own body.
an unawareness of motor deficits
may be related to lack of insight regarding disability
lack of knowledge of person, place, time
What 4 areas must be evaluated in order to differentiate perceptual dysfunction & visual systems dysfunction
- 1. Visual acuity-clarity of vision near & far
- 2. Visual fields-available vision right, left, superior, inferior
- Ex field loss: homonymous hemianopsia
- 3. Oculomotor function-control eye movements

Focus: test occ. perf. that is app. for those living with variety of impairments including cognitive & perceptual impairments
Examines fun. competence in 2 or 3 familiar & chosen BADL or IADL tasks (choose from 80 standardized tasks)
Scoring: observes & documents the motor & process that interfere with task perf.
Final scores: account for task difficulty & severity.
- Assessment of Motor and Process Skills
Pop: adults with cognitive/perceptual (neurobehavioral) deficits.
Method: structured observations of BADL & mobility skills
Scoring: system or error analysis to document underlying perf. components (neglect, spatial) that have direct impact on daily living skills.
Arnadottir Occupational Therapy Neurobehavioral Evaluation (A-ONE)

Utilizes deficit-specific tasks in isolation from ADL
Scoring: accuracy of task completion & time taken
Rivermead Perceptual Assessment Battery
POP: adults with unilateral neglect
Focus: presence of neglect & its impact on fun. task perf.
Method: 9 activity-based subtests (picture scanning, menu reading, map navigation, address & sentence copying, card sort, article reading, telephone dialing, coin sort, telling/setting time).
6 pen/paper (line crossing, star cancellation, letter cancellation, figure/shape copying & line bisection.
Behavioral Inattention Test
Pop: stoke, TBI, tumor
Focus: measures basic cog. functions that are prereq for managing everyday tasks.
20 subtests in 5 areas
orientation, visual, spatial perception, visualmotor organization, thinking operations,
Lowenstein Occupational Therapy Cognitive Assessment (LOCTA)
Pop. ind w memory dysfunction
Focus: initial eval of memory fun & indicates app. tx areas. Monitors memory skills.
Method: 11 categories with 9 subtests
0-9 severe, 10-16 mod, 17-21 poor, 22-24 normal
Rivermead behavior memory test
Assess executive fun. deficits during perf. or real-world tasks (cooking oatmeal, making call, managing meds, paying bills)
Method: structured cueing & scoring system to assess initiaiton, organization, safety, task completion & develop cuing strategies
Executive Function Performance Test
Focus: explores, quantifies, & describes perf. in central areas of brain-behavior relations: consciousness, orientation, attention, language, constructional ability, memory, calculations, reasoning
Cognistat Neurobehavioral Cognitive Status Examination
Focuses on restoration of components to increase skill
Targets cause of symptoms
Imp. in performance components will increase skill
cerebral cortex is malleable & reorganizes
Interventions strategies: table top & computer act. as tx modalities
-memory drills, block designs, parquetry
Remediation/Restorative/Transfer Training Approach
Repetitive practice of fun. tasks person needs/wants
-BADL, IADL, work, leisure
Emphasis on modifications
Emphasis on intact training
Treats symptoms, not cause
Techniques related to env. adaptation & compensatory strategies
Provides info on how the ind. approaches the task
Investigates how perf. changes w cueing
Standardized cues are given to determine their effect on perf.
Cues or feedback used to draw attention to relevant features of the task
Investigative questions are used to provide insight to underlying deficits.
Information Processing Approach
1. Transfer info from 1 situation to another
2. Utilizes varying tx env.
3. Practice of targeted strategy w varied tasks & situations (multicontextual)
4. Metacognitive skills (Self-awareness of strengths & needs)
5. Transfer of learning must be taught from 1 situation to the next & doesnt occur aoutomatically
6. Transfer learning occurs through graded series (visual neglect: scan to find items in refrigerator to scanning to cross road)
person's processing abilities & self-monitoring are sued to facilitate learning
7. Therapist uses awareness questioning (How do you know that's right?) to help ind. detect errors, estimate task difficulty, & predict outcomes.
Dynamic Interactional Approach
1. Based on remediation, information processing & teaching/learning theory
2. Micro-perspective: eval of management of performance component skills (attention, memory, motor planning, postural control)
3. Macro-perspective: evaluation includes use of narratives, interview & real-life occupations (shopping, cooking)
4. Makes use of several theories: info processing, teaching/learning eval, neurodevelopmental eval, biomechanical eval
1. Based on learning theory
2. Used for ind. w acquired neurological dysfunction/dementia
3. Retrain real world skill rather than cog-perceptual processes.
4. adaptive approach but incorporates some remediation
5. TX: train specific fun. skills in true contexts
1. Ind. w psychosocial, neurological & dementia
2. Describe cog. fun on scale 1-6.
3. Each level describes the extent of disability & diff. in perf. occupations
4. Routine tasks presented once level is identified and/or adapated tasks
5. Focus on adaptive approaches & strengthening residual abilities.
Cognitive Disabilities Model
Intervention strategies for Impaired alertness or arousal
- 1. Increase env. stimuli
- 2. use gross motor act.
- 3. Increase sensory stimui
