Developmental drawings can be a predictor of school readiness. This descriptive study compared rural children’s drawings to the national norm. Sixty percent of the children scored below average, with 36% producing no identifiable human trait in their drawing. Identification of delays that impact school readiness at a community level is important for OT practitioners to consider as they expand their practice to provide health promotion and prevention interventions at the community level.
