Product Details

BOT-3 Brief

With the BOT-3 Brief, you can:

  • Obtain a quick overview of motor performance, with minimal space and equipment
  • Screen motor development in individuals from school age to early adulthood, ranging from those who are typically developing to those with mild to moderate motor challenges
  • Identify individuals who require further evaluation or who may benefit from intervention
  • Build a wider picture of functional ability by supplementing with additional assessments

The BOT-3 Brief Form was developed to address the need for a brief version of the comprehensive BOT-3 assessment. It includes 20 items consisting of at least two items from each core BOT-3 subtest. When a screening or program evaluation tool is required, the BOT-3 Brief can be used to determine the need for further assessment. The quick administration time may also give examiners an opportunity to administer other tests within the same session, to gain a broader view of an individual’s skills.


  • Quick and easy to administer
  • Yields a single overall Standard Score of gross and fine motor proficiency
  • Provides additional gross and fine motor cut scores help identify areas for further evaluation
  • Requires minimal space and equipment
