Assessment


Assessments are a vital stage of the Occupational Therapy process; they provide the therapists with a tool to gather important information regarding your child and the difficulties they are facing. Assessments can be completed where ever you require, including at school at home or in one of our clinics.

The purpose of assessments in paediatric Occupational Therapy


There are four main reasons why occupational therapists complete assessments, they are:
  • To identify any concerns or difficulties and how they impact upon daily occupations
  • To prioritise main concerns
  • To naturally observe the child completing activities in school or at home
  • To observe social relationships and how they affect activities
All of our assessments are used to analyse how your child completes daily activities, the results of which will be used to create a therapy plan. Daily activities refer to the activities an average child completes, consisting mainly of three areas: play, school and home life. Typical childhood daily activities include tying shoe laces, getting dressed, balance and play movements and handwriting.

What will be covered in most paediatric Occupational Therapy assessments?


There are four main areas which most of the assessments we provide cover:
  • How the condition impacts upon functioning in daily occupations
  • The impact this has on the school and home environment

Occupational therapy can help your child reach their maximum potential, and increase your child’s functional performance both at home and at school.

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.
