Individually administered tests of gross and fine motor skills for adults 40 and older
Introducing the Bruininks Motor Ability Test (BMAT)—an individually administered, standardized test of gross and fine motor skills for adults. It’s an adaptation of the trusted Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency, Second Edition (BOT™-2), widely used for ages 4 through 21. The BMAT is ideal for professionals in occupational and physical therapies, nursing, human performance, and physical rehabilitation to determine if clients’ motor function issues need to be addressed before they can live independently. The BMAT also helps you set treatment goals and monitor progress. What’s more, you can repeat administrations over the course of treatment and adjust goals as needed.
Comprehensive, stand-alone subtests
For maximum flexibility, you can administer all the subtests or focus on one or two specific motor skill areas. That’s because each subtest has the content, reliability, validity, and sensitivity to stand on its own. Subtests include:
- Fine Motor Integration
- Manual Dexterity
- Balance and Mobility
- Strength and Flexibility
Each subtest can be administered in as little as 15 minutes and you receive three score composites—Fine Motor, Gross Motor, and Total Motor. Also included is the Short Form that offers a quick measure of overall motor ability in just 20 minutes.
A built-in dashboard makes administration easy
An Administration Easel provides an at-a-glance dashboard with a detailed description of how to administer and score each item. Included are verbatim instructions and illustrative photos for the examiner and examinee.
