Assessments

Standardized Assessments

We offer comprehensive standardized occupational therapy assessment packages to meet all the needs of your child.

We offer:

  • School-based assessment packages
  • Home-based assessment packages

Which include:

  • Sensory Profile: the sensory profile provides a standard method for occupational therapists to measure a child’s sensory processing abilities and to profile the affects of sensory processing on functional performance in the daily life of a child.
  • Beery VMI: this is a 3-part assessment which screens a child’s motor coordination, visual motor integration and visual perception.
  • Brigance Diagnostic Inventory of Early Development: a standardized assessment that measures diagnoses delays (i.e. standing, walking, stair climbing, running, jumping, kicking, catching, balance) and age equivalents of the development of children from birth to seven years of age.
  • McMaster Handwriting Assessment (2nd edition): this assessment evaluates the handwriting of school-aged children in kindergarten to grade 6. This assessment was designed to identify the specific areas of handwriting (i.e. postural control, behavioural, pencil grasp, pencil pressure, spacing, reversals) a child is having difficulty with.

Call us today to learn more about standardized occupational therapy assessments and how they can benefit your child.
