OT for kids therapist talking with a child

Information Gathering

The second stage in the Occupational Therapy process is to gather information on the difficulties your child may be experiencing. All of our occupational therapists are friendly, fun and easy-going. We aim to make every experience with us as enjoyable as possible.

If you think your child is experiencing difficulties at home, in school or elsewhere, please call us on 0330 223 0888 to talk to one of our team. If a therapist is available they will be able to discuss any concerns you may have and what the most suitable assessment and/or treatment options are available to you.

As with anything, effective communication is vital. Our trained therapists will be able to ask you the right questions to help you identify the main difficulties your child is experiencing, why they may be experiencing these difficulties and discuss how therapy can help overcome some of these difficulties.

This stage will help to form the basis of your initial assessment, identify the key goals that both you and your child want to achieve from therapy, and the option to discuss what an assessment will contain and its use within the therapy process.

To be referred for a paediatric Occupational Therapy assessment or just to speak to one of our friendly team members please call 0330 223 0888 or email office@otforkids.co.uk

What people say about us...

OT for Kids have been a great help in aiding my son Jake with coping with his dyspraxia both at home and in school. They came out to our house and completed the assessment at home.

The assessment and report proved beneficial in our discussions with Jake's school and we are very pleased with the outcome the report has helped us achieve.
Jackie, parent.
At our school, there are many children who have difficulty forming letters correctly, concentrate or perform well in P.E, which can impact greatly on their learning. With the support and OT Groups available from OT for Kids, these children have made great progress and are now at a level which is not so concerning. As a teacher and SENCO, I thoroughly enjoyed working (and learning) from the Occupational Therapist.
Emily, SENCO and Teacher.
As a case manager, I regularly deal with many private companies. I found OT for Kids to be highly professional, reliable and provide me with flexible appointments that suited both me and my clients. The OT completed a comprehensive assessment and report, which was not only clear, concise and an accurate reflection of the difficulties, but it was returned to me quickly.
John, Case Manager.
