Short Child Occupational Profile

Last Updated

Purpose

The SCOPE helps describe an individual child’s occupational participation by assessing factors that represent the MOHO concepts of skills, volition, habituation, and the environment, regardless of child’s symptoms, diagnosis, age, or the treatment setting to support occupation-focused intervention. The Scope is a simple and quick assessment that captures a child's strengths and challenges according to their developmental stage. This assessment helps gather information to share with the child's treatment team and caregivers. (MOHO web manual)

Key Descriptions

  • Consists of 25-items organized into six sections of which the first five sections (volition, habituation, communication & interaction skills, process skills, motor skills) the child is being rated on their personal factors and their impact on participation and performance. “The last section explores how the environment impacts the child’s ability to participate and perform occupations”.
  • Item-level score uses a letter rating scale of four ordered categories (FAIR).

    F= facilitates,
    A=allows
    I=Inhibits
    R=restricts participation
  • Items given score of 4-0. The rating “F” is assigned value of 4, “A” is 3, “I” is 2, and “R” is 1.
  • Score the numbers and overall rating total is 57.

Interrater/Intrarater Reliability

Pediatrics:(Bowyer et al., 2007)

  • Rater separation of 1.34 with separation reliability of 0.64

(Kramer et al., 2009)

  • Rater separation of 2.24 with separation reliability of 0.83

Construct Validity

Pediatrics: (Bowyer et al., 2007)

  • MnSq = 1.0 is ideal; MnSq > 1.4 with ZStd > indicates misfit

(Kramer et al., 2009)

  • 5.1% of raters had MnSq values > 1.4 with ZStd > 2.0
