What's Included:

As part of our consultancy service, your school will receive comprehensive individual or environmental assessments followed by detailed follow-up reports. These reports will outline the challenges the child is facing and offer recommendations for improvement. Options may include recommending equipment such as sloped writing boards, pencil grips, adaptive seating, or sensory equipment. Additionally, suggestions for further activities or treatment to enhance skills development may be provided.
 

Below is a breakdown of the key components included within our consultancy service:
 

Assessment of Individual Children: Our Occupational Therapists conduct non-standardized assessments of individual children to evaluate handwriting, concentration, fine motor skills, gross motor skills, coordination, and movement abilities. Based on these assessments, tailored treatment plans, activity recommendations, and modifications to the child's daily routine can be provided to improve functionality.

Assessment of Environment: Our Occupational Therapists assess the school environment, offering insights into seating arrangements, posture, adaptive aids, classroom displays, and teaching positions. These assessments are particularly beneficial for children struggling with concentration or attention during lessons.

Individual Case Discussions: Our Occupational Therapists engage in discussions regarding individual cases, providing verbal advice on optimizing the learning environment and overall development of each child.

Verbal Advice and Recommendations: With our therapists onsite throughout the school day, they are readily available to address any queries or concerns. They offer verbal advice and future recommendations for enhancing the learning environment and supporting students' needs.
 

​Following these assessments and discussions, we provide the following reports based on the services rendered:

Individual Reports: Each child assessed during a school day receives an individualized report detailing the assessment findings, current functional level, and specific recommendations for the school. These reports may include examples of activities and equipment suggestions to support the child's needs.

Environmental Reports: Environmental reports summarize assessment findings and provide detailed recommendations for modifying the school or classroom environment to enhance learning. These reports can address individual cases or provide general recommendations for improvement.
