The Point of View Survey


The POVS can be administered to an entire class within 15 minutes. Reflecting Best Practices and the OT Practice Framework, the POVS compares the ‘point of view’ of the teacher, student and evaluator regarding printing competency, instruction, and know how. The perspectives scored by each serve as starting points for intervention or consultation. If… Then… Scenarios provide guidance as to whether a student would benefit from direct service, monitoring and no treatment.
