As part of the high standard of service that is offered at Happy Dots, we feel that it is important to conduct review assessments for children who have participated in therapy on an ongoing basis. This assists in gauging progress, determining needs for future therapy sessions as well as to provide further support in regards to future directions and alternate pathways (e.g. need for other health professionals, school support).
The review assessment will usually be carried out over 1 session (1- 1.5 hours in length) and the content of the review will depend on the child’s needs. This assessment is usually carried out by the therapist who initially assessed your child (where possible).
Sometimes review assessments are crucial for children who receive government funding as they offer standardised information regarding your child’s strengths and areas of difficulty.
An initial assessment is booked for 90 minutes where a series of specifically chosen standardised and non-standardised tests are carried out on your child.
Our meet & greet sessions are designed for those families who may not be sure on whether or not OT will be best suited to them.
Following an assessment, individual therapy sessions of 45-minutes each may be recommended for your child.
Screenings can be conducted at various schools and reschools upon request. An Occupational Therapist will come to you on site, and screen each child.
Our group therapy programs include school readiness programs, music and movement groups, Motor Skills groups, fussy eating groups and social skills groups.
School-based therapy is beneficial for the child as it allows for a direct relationship between the therapist and the teacher. (School visits are subject to availability.)
Parent & Teacher workshops can be tailored to meet your needs and can be held on site or at our Happy Dots clinics.
We stock a wide variety of OT based resources & products that we feel your child would benefit from a result of attending our therapy sessions. We have a selection of resources available in each of our clinics.
We are able to offer home visits on a regular basis, or as a one off consultancy based visit to help set up strategies for your home environment. Home visits are subject to availability & location.
