With the implementation of Public Law 94-142, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act, early childhood screening responsibilities intensified for occupational therapists. Frustrations caused by the absence of adequate testing tools increased proportionately. Lucy Jane Miller began working in 1971 on a new standardized test to predict school-related problems and published the Miller Assessment for Preschoolers (MAP) in 1982. Because the MAP is a new addition to the field of preschool testing, this review will introduce the MAP to occupational therapists and give a general overview and critique of its administration, scoring, and standardization procedures. The MAP has potential for becoming a major screening test for preschool children if it does predict school-related problems.
