Occupational Therapy Assessment can include
- Fine motor coordination
- Gross motor coordination
- Sensory processing
- Handwriting and graphomotor skills
- Functional performance
- Activities of daily living and independence skills
- Developmental assessments
To provide a thorough assessment we require background information from parents/carers in relation to the child’s early development and presentation within the home and social settings. On the day of assessment parents are asked to fill in background information forms and other parental questionnaires.
When assessing occupational therapists and speech and language therapists use a variety of standardised assessments, many of which are based on the biological sex of the child.
Following the assessment feedback is given to the parents/carers via a interview which can be in person or via zoom. This will take place at an agreed time usually later on the same day as the assessment.
A written comprehensive assessment report is sent to the parents/carers within four weeks of the assessment.
Speech and Language Therapy Assessment can include
- Communication skills
- Social skills
Housing Assessment can include
- Environmental assessment for residences
Housing assessments take place within the person’s own home which can be a private residence, communal or residential facility.
Environmental assessments can be completed with a person, school or college.
For housing and environmental assessments, the occupational therapist must see both the person with the disability and the home/facility to be adapted. Exceptions can be made if a person is in acute care/hospital. The occupational therapist will liaise with the acute facility for medical reports and reports of the persons functional abilities.
