Three Occupational Therapists (OT) from New York spent valuable time with our special needs children at the Mason Lincoln Special School in the Umlazi township, just outside Durban. They donated a Nintendo Wii which will be used to help local OT practitioners use this technology with their therapeutic interventions. The therapists were also able to observe, assess and document how the children would respond in the Zulu language to a valid motor assessment. The tests were conducted using one of the latest motor proficiency instruments on the market, the Bruininks Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency (BOT-2), which is used for the collection of data to assess the validity and reliability of the motor performances of children in the Zulu culture. It also provides guidelines for specific occupation therapy interventions for these children in the future which will be used for a Doctoral Occupational Therapy Research Project in the USA.
