For children who have poor fine skills and gross motor skills.
Also for children who are often disorganised, with poor attention and find it difficult following instructions. They could also be under performing at school and show significant handwriting problems.
How we assess:

- Visual Motor integration(VMI)
- Test of visual perception skills (TVPS)
- Handwriting checklist
Why we assess:
Underlying movement problems will affect a child’s academic progress and attention. By identifying and addressing the difficulties will aid a child’s ability in school to attend and function.

Our therapists at Tree Tops are passionate about working with educational staff to grow their knowledge and skills. School staff will be trained and supported when learning to work with children affected by sensory and motor difficulties to integrate the programmes designed for them.
Many children with learning difficulties will have sensory processing difficulties, causing them to struggle with every day experiences like movement and sound. We will assess and design individual programmes and work with teachers on how to implement these into children's routines.
Tree Tops believe all young children benefit from our therapeutic activities and interventions. Whilst we can provide programmes for developmentally delayed children, an integrated approach into the nursery environment ensures no children are overlooked.
