Assessment

When a child is referred they require an assessment to provide a baseline of their current skills and to identify goals for intervention.


We use a range of standardised and non-standardised assessments, informal observations and discussion with parents (and school or preschool if necessary). The selection of assessment tools is bespoke to reason for referral and the child's ability to follow standardised instructions.

 

The assessment will run for approximately 1-1 ½ hours, and will include a lot of play based observations. The OT will need to discuss with the parent/ caregiver/ teacher their concerns and SMART goals will then be set for intervention. 

Following the assessment, the family and therapist will discuss intervention and what it will look like for the child in regards to frequency, structure, goals and location.

Every child will have SMART goals set for their intervention to ensure best practice. The family will be provided with these goals so we can work collaboratively on achieving success.
