Description

The FOX evaluates the client's level of skills in the social/affective domain. The skills included in this assessment are important building blocks to the development of a mature leisure lifestyle. In most cases it should take less than 30 minutes per client to administer and score. The assessment is appropriate for clients who have a developmental level of approximately six months to four years. It is appropriate for clients with developmental disabilities.

The FOX measures reactions to others, reaction to objects, attention seeking, interaction with objects, concept of self, and interactions with others.

For clients who are at similar levels of functioning, you might also want to see the Recreation Early Development Screening Tool or the General Recreation Screening Tool.

Important Notes

"The therapist will find the FOX a good assessment to use on clients who are functioning socially at or below the level of a preschooler.

Caution should be used when interpreting the results of this assessment.

While the Idyll Arbor, Inc staff found that each section followed a general developmental sequence there was not a good correlation between the levels and a specific developmental age.

In other words Level IX did NOT represent the same developmental level across all sections." ("NOT" emphasis added).

Not aware of any scoring information available about the validity and reliability of this assessment.

Hawke sent email to Idyll Arbor requesting if there is any such information available on May 2nd, 2019, 11:45 am. Will post any updates as they occur.
