The evaluation usually takes 1 to 1.5 hours. We start with a discussion about your child’s developmental history & your goals for your child. We will perform a formal evaluation using standardized assessments and clinical observations, and may also ask you to complete questionnaires about your child. We will discuss the findings with you, answer all your questions, and write an evaluation report. If your child qualifies for OT services, the frequency of sessions will depend on the individual needs of your child.
OT sessions are typically 45 minutes to 1 hour. During the session, we will work on the needs and goals identified during the evaluation. We will engage your child in a variety of play activities that are specifically selected to promote their engagement and address their goals. We encourage caregivers to be involved throughout the session. At the end, we discuss your child’s progress and ways to incorporate what we do in OT throughout the week.
