Occupational Therapy supports children who are struggling to participate in daily routines and activities. An individualised occupational therapy assessment gives a clear indication of your child's functional performance and informs a comprehensive report. Recommendations based on your child's needs and interests are provided to support your child to participate as successfully and independently as possible in age related activities, and to reach their full potential.
Standardised / non standardised assessment (at home and /or school)
Observation at home and or school
Discussion with class staff and SENCo
Discussion with parent / carer
Does your child have specific Occupational Therapy targets outlined in their EHCP?
Contact us to discuss how the School OT can help.
After assessment the School OT can undertake individualised 1-1 therapy with your child, working on their identified goals. These sessions can be done both at home or school.
Does your child have SEND? Are you making a parental EHCP assessment request or completing the parent section of a school request?
As both an Educational and Health Professional experienced in submitting successful EHCP assessment requests, The School OT can support parents / carers through this process.
After assessment a report from the School OT can be used to inform the child's EHCP Plan.
The Therapist could also attend a planning / or annual review meeting if required.
"Thank you so much for your clear and detailed report, which clearly outlines my child's sensory processing difficulties and how they can be supported at home and school.
I found the whole assessment process very informative and the fact that you could help with my child's sleep was and an added bonus!"
Mum, St Ives
"We would like to thank you so much for the very informative report which highlighted the difficulties our child had with fine motor skills.
Since your weekly sessions with (child) and the therapy programme that you implemented in school, the difference has just been amazing! (Child) enjoys your sessions and often asks when he will see you again!
At parents evening the Head Teacher advised that she was really happy that you were coming into school, as the Teaching Assistants had learnt so much from you!
