Transcript of MOHOST

Test Evaluation and Selection
The MOHOST addresses 6 concepts allowing the therapist to gain an overview of the client's occupational functioning:

(1) client's motivation for occupation (volition)
(2) pattern of occupation (habituation)
(3) communication/interaction skills
(4) processing skills
(5) motor skills
(6) environment

The MOHOST was designed to be used to document progress towards occupational therapy intervention goals as well as to screen for occupational therapy services.


Easy to administer and flexible enough to use in a lot of intervention settings

Provides a comprehensive evaluation of the person using mixed data collection methods: informal conversations, proxy report, team feedback, or medical records.

Can be used with clients who do not have the ability to verbally self-report or participate in formalized assessment procedures

Translated into many versions including: Arabic, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Hebrew, Icelandic, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Lithuanian, Malaysian, Norwegian, Persian, Portuguese, Slovenian, Spanish, and Swedish.

Can at first take time to administer until familiar with

Further research will be needed to provide additional evidence of the assessment’s reliability and validity.

Been said that the MOHOST doesn’t tell an experienced therapist anything more than they already know.

Therapist- rated assessment (must have adequate and sufficient information about client or the assessment could take longer the 40 minutes.

For challenging clients assessment can take up to a week

24 items (4 items per the 6 sections)
Minimum score 24, Maximum score 96
Each item is scored on an ordinal rating scale:
F= facilitates occupation participation (no outside support required)
A= allows occupation participation (May benefit from occasional support)
I= inhibits occupation participation (Requires support and/or encouragement)
R= restricts occupation participation (Unable to manage despite support)

Can be translated into a 4-point interval rating scale where F=4, A=3,I=2, and R=1.
Instrument Description
Scoring Time
Again, there are no norms for this instrument. It is subjective, and different for every client.
