Occupational Therapy Assessments
I am able to provide Occupational Therapy Assessments which will identify the child or young person’s strengths and weaknesses and help to form goals of skill areas to work on. These assessments can be useful for families, but also for schools and can be used as part of the Additional Learning Needs assessment process. I have built a range of assessment options with different costs with an aim to be affordable but also to meet the needs of each individual child or family.
I have access to a wide range of standardised assessments and checklists including the Sensory Integration and Praxis Tests (SIPT), Movement Assessment Battery for Children (Movement ABC2), the DASH (Detailed Assessment of Speed of Handwriting), The Roll Evaluation of Activities of Living (The REAL), The Detailed Test of Visual Perceptual Skills (DTVPS) and the Sensory Processing Measure (preschool and child).
I am also trialling a loan scheme of these assessments to other professionals. Please contact me if this is of interest to you.
The majority of assessments are carried out in the family home, with access to school arranged if required.
Occupational Therapy Reports
Following the assessment, I will provide a report with recommendations that can be followed by your family, school, etc.
I have varying levels of report to meet your specific needs.
Reports can also be written specifically for Tribunal to demonstrate special educational needs in Wales and England, and I am able to attend Tribunal hearings.
If necessary, I may recommend further assessments (such as some of the standardised assessments listed above) to inform my report.
