The Skills Inventory has three purposes: 1. assess the child’s developmental level in eight categories, 2.
select appropriate teaching goals, and 3. record the child’s acquisition of new skills
It is important to know that the Skills inventory is
used as a normative assessment instrument and
that it does
determine a “precise” score.
The skill inventory is used to determine the skills that student currently has. If the student consistently
and correctly demonstrates a routine skill, then he is given credit for knowing that skills. If the skill is
not consistent, he is not given credit for that skill. It should be known that the acquisition and
consistency of skill acquisition is often slower in a child with low vision and or blindness, especially if
there are any other additional handicapping conditions for that child.
There are eight areas to this assessment. They include: cognitive, social, language, self-help, vision,
fine motor, compensatory, and gross motor. The age of skill acquisition is broken into: birth to one,
one to two, two to three, three to four, four to five, and five to six years.

should be noted that all member of Andrew’s team went over each skill set category as a team to check
