Interpretation Activities

  1. Performance or Prescriptive Requirements are characteristics of the intervention (needs) based on investigative efforts filtered through clinical reasoning and previous experience
  2. Performance requirements are the requirements that accommodations must meet. For example, minimize lowering down to toilet, provide supports for both arms when transferring to toilet, make toilet higher
  3. rescriptive requirements are physical descriptions of accommodation characteristics. For example, raise toilet seat to 17” min, install fold-down grab bars on both sides of toilet.

Assessment Framework: Intervention

Slide reiterates the assessment framework table. This table depicts the information that feeds into the assessment process. Across the top, rendering as columns, assessment activities are divided into Characterization of Problems (Investigation), Analysis of Problems (Interpretation), and Management of Problems (Intervention). Each of these categories is further broken down into sub activities which will be explained in the slides to follow. The categories are all crosscut by person, place, and performance, rendered as rows in the table.
