Measure the quality of a person’s social interaction. The ESI will transform your occupational therapy practice by keeping you focused on occupation.
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

“When I can see [my clients’] strengths and problems, I can help them with their problem areas so that they can better get along with others.”
“By using the Evaluation of Social Interaction (ESI), I get the information I need to help my clients.”
