Initial assessment: I will take a detailed case history and relevant background information from you. I will then use a range of professional assessments and informal observations to determine whether or not therapy will be beneficial or only recommendations are necessary. This will take place at your child's home/school or a clinic room in my home, with you present. The assessment will last for 60-90 minutes. A written report will be provided within 7 days of the consultation. This report will either be a short summary or a more detailed analysis
A formal assessment session before beginning therapy is not always necessary if the child has had a recent NHS assessment and the results can be used to guide the therapy I provide.
I also provide more detailed assessments and lengthy detailed reports for families seeking expert evidence and support for EHCP or educational placement appeals and tribunals.
