Outcome measurement


An outcome measurement is simply an evaluation of progress. To ensure that your treatment is precise and clear, every session is recorded and accurately measured in note format and a re-assessment or evaluation of progress is carried out at regular intervals to demonstrate change in your child's ability over time.

Every single one of our therapist will use an effective method of re-assessment that will produce a clear, detailed and accurate analysis of the progression your child is making during therapy. This is called outcome measurement.

For example, a child with developmental co-ordination disorder may have been initially assessed by using the movement ABC assessment tool. This is a standardised tool, recognised by the college of occupational therapists as being an accurate, rigid and reliable way of recording occupational performance.

Following treatment the therapist will use this tool again (several weeks after the initial assessment) to determine how effective the therapy is on your child's developments. The results of this standardised test will then be analysed and compared to the national average and to previous results. This comparison will give you and your therapist a clear idea of how the child is progressing in therapy and what areas to address next.

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.
