Does the MOHO-IRM Clearinghouse provide copies of MOHO or IRM-related research articles?

Unfortunately because of copyright regulations we are unable make multiple copies of articles for distribution. Most authors are more than willing to share reprints of their article. Contacting that author may be the most efficient way of obtaining a copy of an article. Please note that there may be a small fee involved with this method. Most articles can also be found through libraries and inter-library loan. If you are having major difficulty locating an article and have tried every avenue and been unsuccessful then contact us at

I am a student doing research on MOHO and/or IRM. Does the Clearinghouse provide free manuals for students?

Unfortunately because of production costs we are unable to provide these manuals free of charge. Manuals are for sale on the Products page.

Do I need permission to copy forms from the manuals for clinical and educational use?

Score sheets, summary sheets and other forms, which are provided in the manuals, may be reproduced ONLY by the single individual who purchased the manual for use in practice. Others may not reproduce these forms for use, and each individual user must purchase a manual. An occupational therapy student working under the supervision of an occupational therapist may use the supervising therapist's assessment manual during fieldwork.

Where can I get information on upcoming MOHO workshops?

Information will also be posted on the MOHO list serv. You may email for specific questions about upcoming MOHO workshops or continuing education.
