Assessment and Services

Your Initial Assessment

When meeting with an occupational therapist, a variety of assessments are used. These include:

  • Standardized Assessments
  • Clinical Observations
  • Parent Interview or Checklist

As service providers, occupational therapists evaluate the children in their home and other environments such as school. The initial assessment includes input from both the child as well as the caregivers.

Once the assessment is complete, a full report will be provided including recommendations as well as education and feedback for families. In collaboration with the caregivers, realistic goals are created to best address the child’s needs at that time.

Intervention is customized to meet those needs and to ensure that they can improve their ability to perform in their regular occupations and achieve their goals. Changes to the intervention plan and intensity of treatment can occur at any time depending on the progress of the child.
