School-Based Occupational Therapy Services
Kids In Motion also offers school-based occupational services designed to help each child achieve his or her full potential and improve the child’s functional ability to access classroom curriculum and school environments. Our school-based occupational therapy services begin with an evaluation of the child’s ability to participate functionally in school activities.
Areas of concern are usually initially expressed in a teacher/parent report, which is followed by clinical observation and testing of the child’s ability to access curriculum. The process concludes with the selection of appropriate assessment tools to address specific concerns. Areas evaluated include:
Assessing mobility and the ability to use classroom tools appropriately.
Assessing potential processing difficulties affecting attention, regulation, modulation and discrimination.
Assessing spatial relationships, figure-ground perception, form constancy, body scheme, and orientation to time and place.
Assessing problem-solving, organizational skills, attention and appropriate interaction with peers and adults.
