Wheelchair Assessment Report


The wheelchair assessment report is completed by one of our trained occupational therapists following a wheelchair assessment. The Wheelchair assessment report will outline and justify the need for a wheelchair, the type of wheelchair (propelled, self-propelled etc.), the duration the child may require a wheelchair and describe the great impact this will have upon function both at school and in the home.

Wheelchair Specifications


The occupational therapist will use their extensive knowledge and expertise in deciding on the most suitable wheelchair for your child. A self-propelled wheelchair implies that the child's capabilities to move independently and therefore ability to restore previous function are extremely limited, not only this but due to the expensive cost of a self-propelled wheelchair compared to a propelled one, the decision to recommend a self-propelled wheelchair will be greatly considered. The occupational therapist would also most likely have completed a home visit to see how the home is adapted for wheelchair use, and provide any recommendations to ensure the child can access all the facilities at home.

Impact upon the environment


The wheelchair assessment report would also describe the implications of using a wheelchair for a child at school, travelling and in the home will also be discussed. For example, the social implications at school of using a wheelchair could have a negative impact on confidence and image of the self, the therapist would discuss this possibility, and provide effective educational treatment options to manage these inevitable consequences.

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.
