About OT Arts Occupational Therapy Assessment Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara Occupational Therapy Assessment

A full in-depth occupational therapy assessment consists of multiple elements, including:

Observation

We use clinical reasoning developed over years in the field of occupational therapy to determine areas of strength and weakness.

Standardized testing

We use formal testing to compare your child’s skills to other children the same age.

Reporting

We write a report so that you better understand your child’s strengths and weaknesses which you can share with other professionals that work with your child, including doctors and teachers.

Parent Consultation

We review the written report with you and answer any questions that you have about our findings and recommendations.

Draft Goals and Prepare Treatment Plan

We talk with you about the goals that you have for your child and help you set goals for your child to work on during direct treatment.

Testimonial

Lisa worked with my son for many years. His significant needs place him in a 'severely disabled' category and his growth is measured in very small steps. Her dedication to a very fragile population and high level of professionalism was so comforting to a mom who can only hope that no one ever gives up on her child. Thank you Lisa!
