Are you concerned about your child’s motor development?

Bruininks-Oserstsky Test of (BOT-2) is a standardised assessment of motor proficiency which covers an array or motor skills and provides a reliable measure of gross motor skills against normative date for children 4 years old through to young adults up to age 21 years.

What does the BOT-2 assess?

The BOT-2 Assessment is comprised of five categories each assessing a different aspect of gross motor ability:

  • Balance
  • Running Speed and Agility
  • Bilateral Coordination
  • Upper Limb Coordination
  • Strength

Either one or all categories are able to be assessed based on the child’s individual presentation. The BOT-2 also has a fine motor component which can be added into the assessment if you wish for this to be addressed.

Who can be assessed?

  • Children with unique abilities as a result of a life-long condition
  • Children with impaired communication
  • Typical developing children

What happens after the assessment?

  • Report detailing results
  • Phone call with the assessing clinician to discuss results and discuss potential pathways
  • Potential pathways include individualised programming by Exercise Physiologist to address areas of needs and/or integration into our Youth strong program

Where and when?

  • Nowra: Monday + Thursday
