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 Serby was highly recommended to me by a child psychologist that was assessing my daughter for anxiety and motor delays. My daughter has been receiving OT services with Lisa for 8 months, and we have seen immense progress with her motor planning/coordination issues, as well as her pencil grasp and toe walking. My daughter had an immediate connection with Lisa, due to her calm, approachable demeanor, and she truly looks forward to going to her weekly sessions. We are so grateful for Lisa and this early intervention option which will give my daughter increased ability and confidence for kindergarten this Fall.
