Description: Parents & children come to the OT lab/classroom (room 1107 of the PHNP building behind Shands Hospital) where the children work individually with a pair of graduate OT students alongside other school-age children. The testing environment is playful, fun and energetic. As our graduate students work with each child, parents are asked to fill out short questionnaires regarding their child’s coordination, sensory processing and social functioning and may observe their child’s progress through the assessments. Total time: Approximately 1 ½ to 2 hours.

What we do with your child’s assessment results: Throughout the semester, our students learn about the areas tested and score your child’s assessment.  From the complete occupational therapy evaluation, our students learn to create individualized activities based on each child’s unique strengths and weaknesses. This allows our students to learn to develop a comprehensive picture of a “real life” child.  We then mail your child’s assessment results to you.
