Occupational Therapy Assessments

An Occupational Therapy assessment focuses on the child’s weaknesses and strengths. Paediatric Occupational Therapy intervention starts with a parent interview and observation of the child in different environments. Standardised tests and tools finish the assessment. A special treatment programme will be designed to help you as a family to meet your child’s needs. With permission from the parents, shared information will help teachers and other professionals to better understand your child and help can be put into place.

Regular and intensive Occupational Therapy Sessions:

Occupational Therapy for children focuses on enabling the child to independently take part in all areas of her life. This may be in school, home and/or social life. The child may have problems with play, self care tasks such as dressing, showering or feeding, or with social interaction. The Occupational Therapist helps the child to successfully develop all necessary skills. This might be fine and gross motor skills such as balance and coordination, or fine motor manipulation and dexterity.

Occupational Therapy intervention can take place on a one-to-one basis or within a group setting.
