Description: The Routine Task Inventory was introduced by Claudia Allen in 1985 as an assessment of cognitive abilities in the context of routine daily activities. In 1989, Claudia Allen developed an expanded version of the original Routine Task Inventory (RTI-E). The RTI-E is widely used in clinical practice in Israel where it has also been used in several research studies. Noomi Katz, PhD, OTR, Director of the Research Institute for the Health & Medical Professions, Ono Academic College, Kiryat, Ono, Israel, has recently developed a manual for the RTI-E in 2006 in order to encourage others to use this tool in clinical practice and research.
This manual includes the RTI-E as Allen presented it in 1989 along with clarified instructions for administration. Dr. Katz has generously agreed to make this manual available through the Allen Cognitive Network web site free of charge. If you would like to download a copy of this manual, click on the link below.
