Occupational Therapy Evaluation
Our licensed and experienced occupational therapists will listen to the concerns about your child’s abilities in the areas of self-care, fine motor and sensory processing skills. Based on your concerns, the occupational therapist will evaluate your child in those area(s) of need. Frequently assessed skills during an occupational therapy evaluation include:
- Self-Care Skills (i.e. Dressing, Eating/Feeding, Hygiene, Routines/Sequencing)
- Fine Motor Skills
- Organizational Skills (i.e. keeping up with homework and schedules)
- Sensory Processing Skills
- Visual Motor Skills
The results of these evaluations will guide the therapist’s recommendations for a plan of care including therapy goals and recommended session length and frequency. These evaluations are required prior to beginning ongoing therapy sessions.
Occupational Therapy Sessions
After your child has completed the evaluation, our occupational therapist will identify the area(s) of skill deficits and make recommendations for ongoing therapy sessions. In these sessions, the therapist will utilize fun, interactive age-appropriate activities to develop self-care, fine motor, sensory processing, and/or visual motor skills. The therapist will also educate the child’s caregivers on ways to develop those skills through at-home activities and play.
