Occupational Therapy Assessments

At Learning Solutions, our Occupational Therapy (OT) evaluations are designed to support individuals of all ages—children, adolescents, and adults—in achieving their fullest potential in both daily functioning and academic settings. Our experienced occupational therapist specializes in assessing the functional, sensory, and cognitive challenges that can impact learning, development, and everyday activities.

An OT evaluation may include the following:

  • An interview with the individual and, if applicable, parents, caregivers, or educators to gather information about developmental history, daily routines, academic performance, and specific concerns.
  • Review of any previous assessments, diagnoses, and interventions.
  • Evaluation of fine motor skills, such as handwriting, and manipulating small objects.
  • Rating scales regarding daily living tasks (e.g., dressing, feeding, and toileting) across settings 

  • Analysis of sensory integration and processing abilities.
  • Identification of sensory sensitivities or deficits that may affect attention, behavior, and learning. 

  • As a multi-disciplinary practice, when relevant, we integrate results from separate evaluations of cognitive functions such as memory, attention, problem-solving, and executive functioning.
  • Assessment of visual-perceptual and visual-motor integration skills, which are crucial for reading, writing, and other academic and daily tasks.

  • Review through interview of the individual’s home, school, or work environments to identify potential barriers to learning and participation.
  • Recommendations for modifications or adaptive tools to support success in these settings.

  • Development of individualized goals in collaboration with the individual, and if applicable, parents, caregivers, and educators.
  • Creation of an intervention plan to address identified challenges and support academic and functional development. 

 

Benefits of an OT Assessment:

  • Individualized Approach: Each evaluation is tailored to the unique needs of the individual, ensuring that the intervention plan addresses specific challenges and goals.
  • Holistic Perspective: Our evaluations consider physical, cognitive, sensory, and environmental factors, providing a comprehensive understanding of the individual’s abilities.
  • Enhanced Daily Functioning: By addressing functional and sensory challenges, our OT services aim to improve the individual’s ability to participate in daily activities and academic tasks.
  • Improved Quality of Life: Through targeted interventions, individuals can experience greater independence, confidence, and participation in meaningful activities.

Who Can Benefit from an OT Evaluation?

  • Children, adolescents, and adults with developmental delays, learning disabilities, ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, and sensory processing issues.
  • Students and adults experiencing difficulties with fine motor skills, handwriting, self-care tasks, or participation in academic and daily activities.
  • Anyone who may benefit from support in achieving their academic, functional, and daily living potential.
