OT Screening Checklists

OT Screening Checklist

Do you suspect that your child or student may have challenges reaching certain developmental milestones? Do you ever wonder… is that normal? 

The Preschool and School Age OT Screening Checklists are practical screening tools for teachers, parents and therapists.  The Infant and Toddler Mental Health Screening Checklist will help you better identify red flags for social-emotional and potential mental health concerns in children ages 0-3. 

These checklists highlight common areas that are important for kids to be able to participate and succeed in during every day routines at home, school or in the community.  Use these OT Screening Checklist as a “conversation starter” to talk about your concerns and seek further advice or more comprehensive evaluation as needed.

Here’s an overview of the key developmental areas the Preschool and School Age Checklists cover

  • Motor coordination
  • Fine motor skills for hand dexterity and writing
  • Gross motor coordination
  • Sensory processing
  • Social and emotional learning
  • Executive functioning for learning and attention
