DLOTCA – Lowenstein Occupational Therapy Cognitive Assessment
DLOTCA and DLOTCA-G (geriatric version) are a series of cognitive tests that enable a therapist to evaluate clients with neurological deficits in order to obtain a detailed cognitive profile, enabling intervention planning for management and maintenance. Both assessments build off the research used to develop the original LOTCA™ series and incorporate a dynamic component providing the ability to measure learning potential and recognise thinking strategies through the use of mediation. In addition, they enable the therapist to identify the level of awareness the client has to his/her condition and cognitive disability.
DLOTCA is designed to be used with clients aged 18-69 years old. It consists of 28 subtests in 7 cognitive areas: Orientation, Awareness, Visual Perception, Spatial Perception, Praxis, Visuomotor Construction and Thinking Operations.
DLOTCA-G is intended for evaluation of clients aged 70 and over. It consists of 28 subtests in 8 cognitive areas: Orientation, Awareness, Visual Perception, Spatial Perception, Praxis, Visuomotor Construction, Thinking Operations and Memory.
Each version was designed to provide standardised testing procedures and established norms for systematic data collection in cognitive assessment.
