We can work closely with your organisation to provide expert provision tailored to your needs. We excel at supplying tribunal reports, ongoing contracts with schools, standardised assessments with thorough reports, and we can provide occupational therapy with Sensory Integration as result of tribunal ruling. We are currently work closely with a number of local authorities to provide expert Sensory Integration OT as a result of tribunal rulings, and further provide medico-legal support. We are able to offer assessments that can contribute as supporting data for a child’s EHCP. We can provide occupational therapy to individual children and adults in home, care or school settings.
Services we offer
Types of Assessment
Reports can be commissioned for medico-legal services, especially for tribunals where there are concerns regarding sensory processing difficulties, and to assess occupational therapy need. These reports are done to the highest standard and will include standardised assessment, norm referenced questionnaires and detailed observations in any setting. We can also attend tribunals as expert witnesses when necessary.
A full assessment gives a comprehensive and thorough view of a child’s or adult’s needs. It it a 2-3 hour process using standardised assessment eg BOT-2, Sensory Profile, DASH. The report will be a substantial document and will include recommendations for home (and school if applicable). This report is detailed as can be used as part of an Education, Health and Care Plan. This includes a follow up meeting or phone call to discuss the results of the assessment.
A core assessment is a valuable resource to identify where a child or adults needs support. The assessment is short, lasting about 45 minutes, and using shortened version of standardised assessments such as Short Sensory Profile. The report if requested will also be short, 1-2 pages. This is useful for people who have already had an Occupational therapy assessment previously and would like to start therapy.
We aim to write thorough, expert reports, that really are the highest quality in the field. Our reports can be used for tribunal rulings and as part of a child’s Educational and Health Care Plan (EHCP).
