Your occupational therapist will work with you to schedule your child’s evaluation at a time that works for you and your child. Occupational therapy evaluations are 55 minutes in length and may continue into a second scheduled session. Our occupational therapists do an incredible job of creating an engaging, fun, and non-stressful environment. Therapists use a variety of formal and informal assessment tools including developmental history, observation, oral motor function, sensory function, vestibular function, and visual motor function, and standardized tests to obtain a comprehensive picture of your child’s skills and will create a customized treatment plan with goals specific to your child’s needs.
After the evaluation, your child’s therapist will follow up with you to discuss the results of the evaluation and make recommendations for your child. You will receive a copy of your child’s evaluation report from your child’s therapist. Goals and treatment plans are specific and measurable so that your child’s progress can be tracked. Communication is highly important to us so please be sure to reach out to your child’s therapist with any questions or concerns. Your therapist will work closely with your family to improve your child’s areas of need.
