Goal bank of Developmental Goals for Pediatric Occupational Therapists!

Pediatric Occupational Therapy Goals Make Your OT Goal Writing Easier!

By the time I get to the treatment planning of my evaluations, I just want to be done!

Over the years I developed this quick and easy system to write OT goals quickly and easily.

This is the goal bank I developed over the years of working with children of all ages.

It is taken from the many evaluations and children I worked with.

Having similar goals for all the children on my caseload made session planning much quicker and easier as well.

There are five books planned for this Pediatric Occupational Therapy Goal book series.

The Pediatric Occupational Therapy Goals books are designed as cut and paste goal banks to make your goal writing task easier and quicker!

Book 1: Fine motor, visual motor, and gross motor goals. Ages Birth – 35 months.

Book 2: Self-feeding and oral motor goals. Ages Birth – 5

Book 3: Sensory processing, attention, and social interaction goals (coming soon).

Book 4: Self-care: hygiene and dressing. Ages 1 – 5.

Book 5: Fine motor, visual motor, visual perceptual, motor planning, and cutting abilities. Developmental ages 3-6.

Frequently asked questions

You’ve got questions. We’ve got answers.

What frame of reference are these goals?

They are all developmental.

How do I use these goals?

They are in a cut and paste format! Detailed instructions are included.

Are these goals appropriate for children developing at different rates?

Yes! Directions for picking appropriate goals are included for children developing both faster and slower developmentally.

Are these long-term or short-term goals?

These goals are good for both long-term and short-term goals. However if you write general long-term OT goals, these goals would be the short-term goals.
