Mosaic CTC can offer occupational therapy assessment and intervention for children who need help with functional skills. First we will discuss with the parent and child what they would like to achieve from therapy, and the options for assessment.
Assessment may include –
- Standardised tests which will give an accurate representation of a child’s ability within their peer group and allow observation of general movement.
- Informal discussion – to determine child centred goals.
- Therapist observation – to assess specific tasks such as tying shoelaces, handwriting or scissor skills.
- School visits.
- Liaison with other professionals.
Following the assessment a report will be completed and an intervention plan recommended if appropriate.
Intervention may include –
- Individual therapy sessions either at Mosaic CTC or another venue.
- Activity advice and treatment program.
- Recommendations of other activities in the community.
- Reviews are available to check on progress, address any other concerns and update the intervention program if required.
