OT 4 Kids takes great pride in our comprehensive, high-quality evaluation reports.
A comprehensive OT evaluation explores a child’s sensory processing patterns, gross and fine motor skills development, postural foundations, and visual perceptual development. Tests will be selected to provide information relevant to understanding the nature of your child’s difficulties, determine if treatment is indicated, and an appropriate plan of action. It is possible that occupational therapy may not be necessary, and home program suggestions will be given, as well as possible community resources. At times, referral for other professional evaluations may be suggested. A comprehensive OT evaluation involves two clinic testing sessions, a comprehensive written report, and a follow-up parent conference.
Determined by parental concern, telephone interview, and background information, a Modified Evaluation exploring specific areas of development may be recommended:
- Visual Fine Motor and Sensory Processing
- Fine Motor Development, Graphomotor Skills & Spatial Execution along with
- Visual Perception/Processing
- Sensory Processing Skills
At times it is helpful to include a school observation as part of the evaluation process.
We appreciate the needs of each family and follow the lead of each child while guiding therapy to work towards change and success.
