Occupational Therapy – how does it work?
Occupational Therapists at Sensory Space work independently to provide a range of services. Occupational therapists evaluate the sensory, motor, cognitive, social, and communication skills of children that are related to their participation in everyday life activities. This is done through assessment, diagnosis, collaboration with parents and caregivers, and therapeutic intervention for children.
Particular emphasis is placed on a child’s sensory, motor, emotional regulation, organizational skills social relationships, and self-advocacy skills with the aim for the child to reach their full potential.
Occupational Therapy Assessment
The parents and child are invited for an assessment which takes place in our Centre. Depending on the child’s age and level of ability, the assessment can be play-based or can involve standardized assessments. These can involve a full assessment of their overall needs or assessments in specific areas depending on the children and families’ needs.
If you are unsure of the assessment you require, please contact our Centre to discuss this with one of the Therapists. Parents will be provided with a written report and recommendations following the child’s assessment.
