Occupational Therapy Assessment

At CATS, we can provide comprehensive Occupational Therapy assessments. All our Occupational Therapists are highly experienced specialists, and they all have post-graduate qualifications in Sensory Integration.

We will send you screening questionnaires before your child's assessment. These will help your therapist create a tailored assessment specifically designed for your child's needs.

Assessments may look at a combination of:

  • Functional skills (activities of daily living)
  • Sensory Processing
  • Motor skills
  • Emotional regulation

After the assessment, you will receive a detailed report with recommended strategies and resources.

We are unable to provide assessments specifically for EHCP assessments and reviews, and our therapists cannot advise on school placements or therapy hours required. However, Our assessment reports can be used as supporting evidence for EHCP applications and shared with your child’s school and other professionals to ensure continuity of support strategies.

Sometimes, upon reviewing your child’s referral, we may not feel that your child is right for our service. In this instance, we will always do our best to signpost you to other services which may be able to help. If we feel it is possible that your child may meet the criteria for Development Coordination Disorder, we will advise you to see our Paediatrician first, as this is a prerequisite for possible diagnosis. Sometimes, we may recommend a referral to other services after your assessment. We will always discuss this with you, and you are under no obligation to undergo further assessment with CATS.

If you would like to make a referral to our Occupational Therapy Service, please fill out the referral form. A member of the team will contact you within five working days.
