The Assessment of Communication and Interaction Skill (ACIS) Version 4.0, 1998

Kirsty Forsyth, with: Marclle Salamy, Sandy Simon, and Gary Kielhofner

By providing a structured way to view communication and interaction, occupational therapists can use the ACIS with clients to identity areas of strength and habits interfering with effective interaction. Specific communication and interaction skills, such as gesturing, focusing, and respecting, can be practiced to facilitate participation in meaningful occupations and valued social groups.

The ACIS is an observational assessment that gathers data on communication and interaction skills. Three domains, physicality, information exchange, and relations, are used to describe different aspects of communication and interaction. The ACIS gathers data on skill as it is exhibited during performance in an occupational form and/or within a social group.
