Using the ESI In Practice

The ESI results can be used as powerful evidence to help you:
  • Determine a person’s need for occupational therapy services
  • Document an objective measure of a person’s quality of social interaction
  • Plan occupation-centered interventions
  • Set realistic, client-centered, occupation-based goals
  • Document evidence that a person’s quality of social interaction has changed
  • Communicate the unique role of occupational therapy
