The Measure of Engagement, Independence, and Social Relationships (MEISR) measures the extent to which young children age 0 to 3 participate in their everyday routines, which is an assessment of functioning. The MEISR tool is a 24-page consumable form sold in packs of 5.
"This practical manual is a needed next step in the Routine Based Interview process that many Early Intervention providers now use. It contains valuable information, and useful examples of functional skills and behaviors that children use organized into 14 daily routines of families. This allows providers to quantify authentic assessment information in a concrete way. The comprehensive lists of skills, case examples, scoring information about conducting authentic assessment and functional IFSP outcomes will greatly enhance provider practices." --Lynda Cook Pletcher, M.Ed.
