Free Online Evaluation Tools for Mobile Occupational Therapists

Jane Bufe, OTD, OTR/L

September 6, 2022

As a mobile occupational therapist with my own private practice, I know how challenging it can be to find free and reputable evaluation tools.

I have compiled a list of free assessments with links that I have used and found helpful. This list is geared toward outpatient therapists that work with adults in their homes. These tools assess personal skills, the home environment, and occupations. I did not create these assessment tools.

Thank you for reading this and for all you do as a therapist to serve adults in their homes.
