Stepping Forward physiotherapists are trained in assessing specific needs of children with disabilities and can administer standardised assessments.
These assessments are used to support an application for funding from funding providers. BOT2: The Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency, Second Edition (BOT2) is the most widely used motor proficiency test and provides a comprehensive assessment of motor development.
It comprises of a series of sub-tests in fine motor control, manual coordination, body coordination, strength and agility. Physiotherapists use the scores to determine the child’s functional level compared to norms and interpret the information to determine their needs.
