Therapist, Parent and Child all sat on chairs having a discussion

Problem Formulation


Problem formation is a vital stage of the Occupational Therapy process. This stage enables you to work together with the therapist in expressing your main concerns of both the day to day function at school and at home, any concerns you may have for the future and how this will affect the development of your child.

An example could be that you have noticed how poor your child's handwriting is and that they have started to complain about pain in their hands when they write for long periods. You may also have noticed how this is affecting their ability to get dressed in the morning and is making you late for school. Our occupational therapists will be able to extract the underlying message from these problems and work with you in planning a way forward to not only improve the skills of your child but in ultimately making life easier for the both of you.

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.
