EVALUATIONS

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY INITIAL EVALUATION

At WE Play we take pride in our thorough, detailed evaluations.  What is most important to us is not just noticing the superficial behaviors and challenges the children are having, whether that be handwriting, social-emotional challenges or even regulation, but getting down to the root of what is actually impacting your child's challenges.

WE also prioritize in-depth parent feedbacks to make sure parents have a solid understanding of their child's needs prior to beginning Occupational Therapy, if appopriate.

ALL LEVELS OF AN OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY EVALUATION CONSISTS OF THE FOLLOWING:
