Comprehensive Occupational 

Smart Sensory Kids offers a number of different occupational  therapy evaluation services to help determine the most appropriate treatment strategy for your child. Through initial conversations and detailed intake forms, we will determine, together, which type of evaluation(s) your child may require.

Comprehensive OT Evaluation:

This is the most thorough and commonly suggested evaluation we provide before beginning occupational therapy services. This evaluation focuses on providing a differential diagnosis of sensory integration dysfunction based on the most recent research being utilized today (i.e., we identify which type[s] of sensory integrative dysfunction your child may display).

The comprehensive OT evaluation combines clinical observations, standardized assessments, checklists forms and parent report. Total therapist time for this evaluation is approximately 9-10 hours broken down as follows: 

  • 1-2 hour parent interview
  • 2-3 hours direct assessment
  • 3-4 hours detailed written report and scoring of assessments
  • 1-2 hours evaluation feedback meeting and initial goal assessment planning.

We choose direct assessment tools utilized based on your child’s age, abilities and needs.

Occuaptional Therapy Screening:

This evaluation is for a child who has either received sensory integrative occupational therapy services in the past or has received a comprehensive occupational therapy evaluation in the last year. This occupational therapy screening evaluation allows the treating therapist to assess your child’s current status and determine relevant treatment needs and goals.

The assessment time for the evaluation lasts one hour, followed by a 30-minute discussion and feedback checklist. Additional evaluations may be recommended at this time.

Movement ABC(Standardised Assessment)

The MOVEMENT ASSESSMENT BATTERY FOR CHILDREN (ABC) is a good diagnostic tool for children ages 4-12. The test takes approximately 1 hour to administer. Once the evaluation report is completed, there is a parent conference scheduled to discuss the findings and recommendations.

      • VMI:

Visual motor integration (VMI) skills refers to the smooth coordination of the eyes and hands working together. The August-November 2005 issue of "The Indian Journal of Occupational Therapy" relates that your visual-motor skills help you translate visual perceptions into your motor or movement skills such as coordination. Children who have problems with VMI skills may need occupational therapy or additional help at school to improve their skills.
