Model of Human Occupation Screening Tool (MoHOST)

The MOHOST is an assessment that addresses the majority of MOHO concepts (volition, habituation, skills, and environment), allowing the therapist to gain an overview of the client’s occupational functioning. Developed in Britain by practitioners, the MOHOST seeks to objectify the information a therapist gathers while screening for occupational therapy services. The MOHOST uses a variety of data collection methods and is flexible enough to be used in a variety of intervention settings. Finally, the MOHOST uses language that enables therapist to communicate findings clearly with clients, their families, and other professionals.

The MOHOST addresses client’s motivation for occupation, pattern of occupation, communication, process, and motor skills, and 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. Extensive rating criteria for each item is provided in the manual. MOHOST Version 2.0 was newly revised based on recent researches and the rating scale criteria have been changed to letter rating scale labels (F= Facilitates occupational participation, A= Allows occupational participation, I= Inhibits occupational participation, R= Restricts occupational participation).
