Case Studies

Meet Jimmy

Jimmy is 10 years old, he enjoys playing football and wants to do well at school. Jimmy has dyspraxia, or developmental co-ordination disorder. Dyspraxia is a well known condition, however the association between the condition and how it can affect a child at school is not so well understood. Dyspraxia affects a child's planning, processing, and motor co-ordination, which dramatically impacts upon a child's performance in school.

Jimmy struggles to ride a bike, he is never picked for the school football team, and the teachers at his school are expressing concerns regarding his writing. Jimmy tries very hard to keep up with the class when he is copying from the board, however he just can't keep up. He has to concentrate so hard on making his writing neat and legible, that he often misses the information being taught and the objectives for the lesson.

Jimmy came to our clinic and received an initial assessment and ongoing monthly treatment. Alongside his ongoing treatment, Jimmy and his parents worked through a home programme of activities to improve his skills, and Caroline, his Occupational Therapist, visited his school to improve his environment and increase his learning opportunities.

Over time, Jimmy's writing became legible and he was able to kick a football with good accuracy and he even managed to get his way onto the school football team! Both Jimmy and his parents were extremely pleased with the support, advice and expert help they received from OT for Kids in helping Jimmy achieve his goals.

All of our assessments and treatments are centred around the patient.

We believe that together we achieve more.

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.
