Purpose of the measure
The Ontario Society of Occupational Therapists (OSOT) Perceptual
Evaluation was designed to assist in the detection of perceptual
impairment in adults who have experienced brain damage caused by
traumatic brain injury or stroke. The OSOT assesses perceptual
dysfunction in areas related to basic living skills. The measure is
also used to determine the degree of impairment, to monitor change,
and to measure the effects of treatment and/or spontaneous recovery.
The OSOT has been standardized for use with individuals aged 40-69
