Assessment


At OT for Kids we have a wide range of experienced therapists who can offer assessments that will suit your child's needs. The therapist would use these assessments to gain a better insight into the difficulties your child is experiencing and how these are impacting on their ability to perform in activates at school or at home.


Benefits of OT assessments:

  • Gain understanding behind your child's behaviour
  • Identify clear goals
  • Chance to discuss any worries/concerns with someone in the know
  • Understand the difficulties your child is facing
  • How these can impact on school/home life
  • Increased awareness of the many therapy options available to improve your child's function

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.
