Assessment Packages – 

Occupational Therapy assessment is essential to understand a child’s unique sensory and motor strengths and needs and how these impact upon their participation in family life or at school. An Occupational Therapy assessment report is an extremely valuable tool in helping all those supporting the child to understand their needs, to be empathetic and to start to put recommendations into place on a daily basis.

As sensory processing and motor skills differences are very common in Autistic children and in children with a diagnosis of ADHD, Developmental Coordination Disorder/Dyspraxia and Developmental Delay, it is very important for evidence and recommendations from an OT to be included in an EHCP.

How can My World Therapy OT EHCP reports help?

At My World Therapy, all our OTs have extensive experience and post graduate training.

Our OT EHCP reports:

  • Help families to secure the right educational placement for their child.
  • Help children to gain one to one support from a Learning Support Assistant to ensure that OT recommendations are fully implemented at school.
  • Result in recommended OT provision being included in Section F of the EHCP, meaning that children receive the follow up OT they need.
  • Help parents and school staff to understand the child’s unique sensory and physical strengths and needs.

Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) Assessment

This assessment will identify any a child’s unique sensory and motor strengths and needs and how these are impacting upon their participation at school and home. This approximately two-hour appointment is carried out at the therapy practice. Assessment is individually tailored to your child. Standardised and non-standardised assessments will be used in addition to observation and parental interview. Information will be gathered from school staff through questionnaires. Verbal feedback will be given during the appointment. A comprehensive report will be provided and this will be written in the format required for an Education Health and Care Plan. Recommendations will be made for the sensory environment the child needs to enable them to learn. Specified and quantified recommendations will be made for any additional support the child requires at school and for future Occupational Therapy provision.

If highlighted through assessment, the report will provide a Consultant Paediatrician with the evidence they require to consider a diagnosis of Dyspraxia/Developmental Coordination Disorder.

TESTIMONIALS

It was a privilege to work with Anna in her capacity as Senior Occupational Therapist. As Lead Specialist teacher for Autism in Essex I worked with her closely over a number of years. Many qualities spring to mind when I think of Anna: she is innovative, practical, calm and empathetic. Her knowledge and skill in working with children with autism was outstanding. She successfully tailored programmes for individual children and her training sessions were always informative and interesting. I would not hesitate to recommend Anna for providing therapy sessions, delivering training or supervision.

JILL HORNE Senior Learning Co-ordinator (Specialist Teacher Team), Essex County Council
I have known Anna Hamlet since 2008, when she began working with my son as his Occupational Therapist, following his diagnosis of Autism.

I soon became heavily involved, during the founding stages, of the specialist Autism and Asperger’s (STAARS) Team, as one of two ‘Autism Parent Representatives’ in Thurrock and a greater area of Essex. I support parents and children and deliver the Good Beginnings Course, when NHS resources allow me to ‘borrow’ a professional staff member for a morning, weekly for 10 weeks.

In all the time I have known Anna Hamlet – as a parent and working with her within the STAARS Team, I have found her to be enthusiastic and approachable. She is absolutely a key team member and is always up to date with recent research and findings, incorporating that into her vast area of knowledge. She can reach out to parents on their individual level and explain their child’s difficulties; moving them onto actually providing that much needed help themselves. She encourages and gives realistic hope (which we need as parents, to empower us!). She is also great to work with. During our Good Beginnings Sessions, we assign one week (one morning) to various members of Health and Education. Anna’s OT sessions are always extremely well attended and enormously welcomed; our parents look forward to meeting with her, and returning with questions later too.
