Occupational / Sensory Processing Assessment

 

Occupational Therapy Assessment


Occupational Therapy (OT) Assessment is likely to be the most fun assessment your child will ever undertake. Many of the tools OTs use are play-based, because OTs use play as the primary means of therapy.  OTs want to understand your child’s functional skill level in the following areas:
 

  • Occupational Therapy Assessment

  • Play Assessment

  • Gross Motor Skills Assessment

  • Fine Motor Skills Assessment

  • Visual-Motor Co-ordination Assessment

  • Handwriting Assessment

The McMaster Handwriting Assessment Protocol (2nd Edition)

The McMaster Handwriting Assessment Protocol (2nd Edition) provides a structured framework for assessing the handwriting of school-aged children in kindergarten to Grade 6. This protocol was designed to identify the specific areas in which a child is having difficulty with handwriting and to help occupational therapists determine whether and where to intervene.

Sensory Processing Assessment

The Occupational Therapist will assess how your child processes sensory information, which includes the five senses of touch, sight, hearing, taste and smell, as well as two additional senses: proprioception (related to body awareness) and vestibular awareness (related to balance and position in space). Difficulties with sensory processing can often create difficult behaviours for children, which can impact their ability to participate in general activities.

Sensory Profile-2

The sensory Profile-2 assessment provides a standard method for professionals to document children’s sensory processing patterns, and when combined with information and participation, supports the team in identifying the effects of sensory processing in the context of a child’s home, school and community. It can be done with parents/caregivers who have children from birth to 14 years 11 months old.

IRLEN Screening

 

The Irlen Method is non-invasive technology that uses colored overlays and filters to improve the brain’s ability to process visual information.  It is the only method scientifically proven (over 54 research papers have been published in peer-reviewed journals showing significant changes in reading rate, accuracy, and comprehension) to successfully correct the processing problems associated with Irlen Syndrome.
 

The cornerstone of the Irlen Method is its precision-tinted colored overlays and filters.This technology can improve reading fluency, comfort, comprehension, attention, and concentration while reducing light sensitivity. This is not a method of reading instruction. It is a color-based technology that filters out offensive light waves, so the brain can accurately process visual information.

Physiotherapy Assessment

When you bring your child to one of our paediatric physiotherapist, you can expect a longer appointment duration than other practices because we want to make sure your child receives a thorough assessment, because all aspects of a child’s development are interlinked.  Some children take some time to ‘warm up’,and don’t want to rush your child if they take a little time to warm up – we will get a better idea of your child’s abilities and needs if they are happy and engaged, rather than anxious or upset.

During your child’s physiotherapy appointment we:

  • Assess your child’s motor and overall development, using our clinical observation skills, special measures, and specific hands on assessment techniques

  • Assess their motor milestones

  • Assess unusual patterns to move

  • Assess any difficulty with motor skills, such as jumping/hopping or ball skills

  • Assess if they are clumsy or uncoordinated etc.

  • On the whole our Physiotherapist identifies if your child is doing well, what they are having difficulty with, and why they are having those difficulties.

Please book an appointment with our Physiotherapist for a Consultation and an Assessment.
