Assessment


At OT for Kids we have a wide range of experienced therapists who can offer assessments that will suit your child's needs. The therapist would use these assessments to gain a better insight into the difficulties your child is experiencing and how these are impacting on their ability to perform in activates at school or at home.


Benefits of OT assessments:

  • Gain understanding behind your child's behaviour

  • Chance to discuss any worries/concerns with someone in the know
  • Understand the difficulties your child is facing
  • How these can impact on school/home life
