Occupation kits are a public domain instrument that you may use without a fee. These kits are designed to help occupational therapy practitioners address occupations during evaluation and intervention, ultimately improving individuals’ occupational performance and outcomes of care.
Attached are the materials and supplies needed to make each kit, photographs of the kit, kit instructions (including observations and safety recommendations), and ratings of the level of physical abilities required to complete the kit (based on the Occupational Information Network).
When using the kits for evaluation, practitioners should administer the Assessment of Work Performance (AWP) to quantitatively rate performance. The motor skills scale of the AWP is included in each kit with permission from the author. We suggest that practitioners purchase the AWP administration manual, which includes the other two scales measured with the AWP (process skills and communication/interaction skills), as well as psychometric properties. The full measure by Sandqvist, Lee, & Kielhofner, 2010 can be purchased online here.
We are excited that you are considering applying to the Program in Occupational Therapy at Washington University. Please join us for a Zoom Information Session for either our entry-level MSOT or OTD degrees or our online post-professional OTD. Current faculty members will discuss the Program and answer any question you may have. We are offering these sessions on the following days and times. The content is the same for each one, so you only need to sign up for one.
