ADMINISTERING THE ESI

The ESI Assessment takes less than one hour to administer and score, resulting in a reliable and valid measure of a person’s quality of social interaction.
  • Observe a person engage in at least two real social interactions with typical social partners and with purposes determined by the client
  • Score the quality of 27 social skills that the person enacted during the social interaction
  • Use the OTAP software to generate an ESI Results Report that includes an ESI measure that represents the person’s quality of social interaction
  • Plan interventions, develop goals, write documentation, and provide evidence of change in a person’s quality of social interaction
