Schoodles is a qualitative assessment of skills that contribute to fine motor work. Skills are assessed according to age levels of attainment and quality of performance, and it can be individualized for each students identified challenges. Digital memberships include a new age of skill attainment criterion reference chart. Schoodles can be used as a stand-alone tool to determine the need for intervention or as a companion to standardized testing for students ages 3 and older. Components of the assessment are chosen based on the student need identified by the student's teachers.

Skills are broken down into Classroom Skills and Supporting Skills, those skills needed to support fine motor outcomes.

Classroom skills included are design copy, handwriting, coloring, cutting, and puzzle construction. Supporting skills included are manual muscle testing, proprioception, gross motor coordination, eye-hand coordination, finger coordination, crossing midline, motor planning, bilateral coordination, trunk strength, and vision skills.

Observations made during these tasks are analyzed to determine if there are need areas that can be addressed by an occupational therapist.

Goals can be easily written from the information gained from the assessment using the goal writing guide. It takes about 30-45 minutes to move through the assessment.

Memberships for this tool include a quick start guide to get you going fast with help at each step for remote or in-person assessments, a criterion-referenced tool for age level placement for each skill, training videos for therapists, task videos for students to watch as you observe, assistance with remote use, separate forms and workbook pages, including 5 new handwriting pages, fillable forms for on screen use.

We recently added a new report writing template with drop downs, suggested content and templates for other frequently used tests to make report writing fast and easy.
This assessment covers how to best evaluate a student who may need keyboarding support. Through the assessment, keyboarding and handwriting can be compared for efficacy and speed. The tool is the result of many hours of research regarding how the skill of keyboarding can be addressed within the scope of occupational therapy practice.

The assessment includes a Background Information Form, a Teacher Question Form, a Student Question Form, and a detailed Record Sheet. We also include typing samples to copy, links to timed tests, and links to keyboarding programs for intervention.

The workbook helps therapists compare handwritten work to work produced on a keyboard. We include an assessment of classroom skills relevant to keyboarding and an assessment of supporting skills. We use the same cost-effective reproducible format we use in the original Schoodles assessment.

These tools will help gather information to make a clinical case for or against keyboarding intervention by an Occupational Therapist. The keyboarding membership offers fillable forms and individual workbook pages to customize your assessment to the student. One-time purchase, lifetime access includes any updates or changes we make to the tool.
Digital memberships include everything in the hard copy and more! They provide online access to forms and workbook pages as well as videos, and continuously updated information. We have recently adopted the membership tools for telehealth/remote assessment purposes in response to the COVID 19 crisis. Best of all, digital memberships are a purchase once option, LIFETIME ACCESS. NO Yearly Membership Fees. We are constantly adding new features! Watch for updates! Choose both the hard copy and digital membership for ultimate flexibility and access to new information. *Memberships are one login per therapist and allow one therapist to log in at a time.
