Special Schools Assessments

Our Occupational Therapists will be able to determine the cause of the difficulties and work with educational staff to train them on sensory processing and how to implement therapeutic programmes and strategies to benefit children in their care. A sensory diet/routine for the child will be designed to be implemented throughout the school day.

Sensory Assessment

Sensory programmes aim to reduce inappropriate behaviours and facilitate the child's self-regulation to access classroom activities.

Movement Assessment

Many children with complex needs struggle to sit still, focus and cope with school environment. This programme aims to help the child learn and reduce the support they need in class.

Fine Motor Assessment

For children who display motor coordination difficulties, the aim is to improve these difficulties and facilitate their ability to concentrate sit upright and learn.

Handwriting Assessment

For children who have problems writing and holding a pencil, the aim is to improve grip and dexterity when handling tools/utensils.

Functional Assessment

We offer a variety of hand writing programmes, the aim is to improve the child's handwriting ability and tackle the underlying cause of the problem.

Independent Skills

We can design a programme to help children develop independence and the necessary movement skills for the task increasing confidence and releasing staff time.
