A001 Goal Oriented Assessment of Life Skills (GOAL) The Goal-Oriented Assessment of Life Skills (GOAL) is an evaluation of fundamental motor abilities needed for daily living. It consists of seven activities which focus on dynamic functional tasks that are markers for important aspects of a child’s daily life. The activities provide a standardized, psychometrically precise measure of a child’s strengths and challenges in a fun and motivating way. The GOAL provides a set of scores that emphasize the motor components of a child’s participation at home, school and social settings. The scoring system is based on three elements of successful functional performance: accuracy, independence and speed.

Age: 7 years to 17 years
Duration: Five sessions of one hour each

A002 Developmental Profile 3 (DP-3) The internationally well-known Developmental Profile 3 (DP-3) assessment is a well-established measure of child development. The DP-3 provides five scales: physical, adaptive behavior, social-emotional, cognitive, and communication designed to assess the development and functioning of children.

The DP-3 tests a full range of skills, from serious delay through above average ability, up to approximately age 7 to 9 years (depending upon the scale). At higher ages, its primary use is in identifying skills that are below average and in providing assurance that the skills of higher functioning children are at least within the normal range. In this sense, effective use of the DP-3 is supported through age 12 years.

Age: Birth to 12 years

Duration: Five sessions of one hour each

A008 Trauma Symptom Checklist for Children (TSCC)

The Trauma Symptom Checklist for Children (TSCC) is a self-report measure of posttraumatic distress and related psychological symptomatology. It is intended for use in the evaluation of children who have experienced traumatic events, including childhood physical and sexual abuse, victimization by peers (e.g., physical or sexual assault), major losses, the witnessing of violence done to others, and natural disasters. Because of the shorter attention span of children, especially those who have been psychologically traumatized, the TSCC consists of a relatively small number of particularly trauma-responsive items.

Age: 8 years to 16 years

Duration: Three sessions of one hour each

A008 Trauma Symptom Checklist for Children Alternate Form (TSCC-A)

The Trauma Symptom Checklist for Children (TSCC-A) is an alternate form of the TSCC which is self-report measure of posttraumatic distress and related psychological symptomatology with no reference to sexual issues. The TSCC-A addresses concerns of some individuals that children might be upset by reference to sexual issues in a psychological test. It is intended for use in the evaluation of children who have experienced traumatic events such as childhood abuse, victimization by peers, major losses, the witnessing of violence done to others, and natural disasters. Due to the shorter attention span of children, especially those who have been psychologically traumatized, the TSCC-A consists of a relatively small number of particularly trauma-responsive items.

Age: 8 years to 16 years

Duration: Three sessions of one hour each
