Occupational Therapy assessment is a comprehensive process designed to evaluate a child’s abilities, challenges and specific needs. It might involve techniques such as clinical observations, standardised and non-standardised assessment tools, interviews and questionnaires or functional skills evaluations. The primary aim is to identify a child’s strengths and challenges, and develop a personalised treatment plan. (Children under 4 years old may not be able to fully engage in some of the standardised assessment tasks, so in these cases we rely on consultation with nursery staff and families. These consultations are charged at a reduced rate and a shorter report is also generated).
