Intervention for Individuals

Following assessment a programme of intervention is devised to work on the priorities of each child and their family.  This could include:

Individual treatment  Occupational Therapist assisting child to develop motor skills

A programme of treatment sessions can be arranged to work towards individual goals.  Frequency of sessions vary according to each child’s needs but will be arranged at times convenient to your family.  To minimise disruption and encourage communication with other professionals sessions ideally take place at school.  If this is not possible or desired a community venue in Brentwood or Billericay can be arranged.

Activity programme for home and school 

A written programme of activities that can be carried out with a parent or member of school staff.  Telephone support is available where necessary.

Recommendation of equipment

Equipment can be useful to provide postural support or to assist with developing skills.  Examples include moulded pencil grips, a writing slope or a seat cushion.

Liaison with Teachers

Your Occupational Therapist can meet with your child’s teacher or SENCo to discuss the assessment and recommended intervention.  Attendance at educational meetings or an annual review can also be arranged.
