What will the initial occupational, physical, or speech therapy evaluation look like?
For occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech therapy evaluations, the evaluating therapist works directly with your child and will ask questions of both you and your child depending on your child’s age. There will be lots of movement on equipment and mostly fun activities. There may be some table top activities, or range-of-motion measurements.
Our therapists are experts at getting the information that they need out of seemingly routine kid centered activities. Most kids enjoy the initial evaluation. The evaluation will last from 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on what is scheduled. At the end of the appointment, the therapist will be able to identify if further treatment is recommended.
We work to positively impact kids, families, and society for the future by providing the best therapy services for all, regardless of their ability to pay, and by educating parents, teachers, other professionals, and our community regarding the unique needs and potential of our clients.
