OT For Literacy

The Dream Home Assessment (DHA)

The Dream Home Assessment (DHA) was created as a functional performance based OT assessment that efficiently enables an occupational therapist to evaluate executive function skills within the mental health population in a non-threatening way. It was inspired by the Build a City (BAC) assessment that was developed in 1975 as a constructive, projective evaluation of social interaction skills for mentally ill clients (Clark, 1999). The DHA measures executive functions in a non-routine, novel activity, which does not require reading.
