If you feel your child would benefit from an assessment, one of our skilled Occupational Therapists can visit your child in their home or school environment.

School assessment


There are a number of benefits to being assessed or treated in school. These include:
  • SENCO Involvement
  • Observations in natural learning environment
  • Refined recommendations for schools
  • Social observations
A school assessment gives our Occupational Therapist the opportunity to observe your child in their learning environment and assess any barriers to their education. Therefore, ensuring all strategies and recommendations are appropriate for the school environment.

Home assessment


Our Occupational Therapist is also able to visit your child at home to complete assessment or treatment. There are many advantages of a home assessment, some of which include:
  • Comfortable environment
  • Observations completed in natural environment
  • No travel expenses
A home assessment gives our Occupational Therapist the opportunity to observe your child in a relaxed familiar environment. Therefore, gaining a true representation of difficulties experienced by your child. From the assessment our Occupational Therapist can suggest strategies to implement within the home environment

What people say about us...

OT for Kids have been a great help in aiding my son Jake with coping with his dyspraxia both at home and in school. They came out to our house and completed the assessment at home.

The assessment and report proved beneficial in our discussions with Jake's school and we are very pleased with the outcome the report has helped us achieve.
Jackie, parent.
At our school, there are many children who have difficulty forming letters correctly, concentrate or perform well in P.E, which can impact greatly on their learning. With the support and OT Groups available from OT for Kids, these children have made great progress and are now at a level which is not so concerning. As a teacher and SENCO, I thoroughly enjoyed working (and learning) from the Occupational Therapist.
Emily, SENCO and Teacher.
As a case manager, I regularly deal with many private companies. I found OT for Kids to be highly professional, reliable and provide me with flexible appointments that suited both me and my clients. The OT completed a comprehensive assessment and report, which was not only clear, concise and an accurate reflection of the difficulties, but it was returned to me quickly.
John, Case Manager.
