Equipment Report


An Equipment report would offer an overview of the Equipment assessment completed by the Occupational therapist. You may wish to use the Equipment report as a second opinion, or to provide more information for teachers, or just for your own reference. The purpose of the Equipment report is decided by you, it will be written by each therapist following an assessment, and is therefore a personalised reflection based on how the condition is affecting your child and what aid, adaptation or modification will help your child live a more independent lifestyle. Inside the Equipment report would contain information regarding the following:

How the condition is impacting upon the daily level of independent function for your child


This report would contain suggestions of the most appropriate adaptive equipment your child may need to overcome any difficulties highlighted from the assessment. Common difficulties experienced at home are getting dressed and using cutlery properly, some of the possible adaptive equipment the occupational therapist may advise to improve these aspects are a sock grabber (for dressing) and the use of adaptive cutlery which is shaped especially to aid in cutting food.

Educational recommendations within school


Within this report, you would also find any equipment the occupational therapist feels will benefit your child during school time. For example if your child is struggling to write correctly, the therapist could recommend a writing slope to promote posture and improve handwriting.

Other adaptive equipment could be:

  • Posture Chair
  • Transfer boards
  • Weighted Jackets (for sensory feedback)
  • Adaptive scissors
  • Computer aids
  • Bathing seat
  • Pencil grip
  • Adaptive Pens
  • Fidget toys
  • Therapeutic putty

The treatment plan aimed to improve the functional performance


Finally the Equipment report would provide a detailed description of the therapy action plan, including logistics, the theory and its application both at home and school environment. The therapist would use their extensive knowledge and skills to summarise the impact the problems your child is experiencing on daily occupations.

Each of our highly experienced therapists can to tailor the report to your needs, offering you the special personalised treatment to make your life easier.

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.
