This is a very useful service for you to book into prior to your child starting the new school year. Our “OT Check Ups” for children in Kindergarten, Pre-Primary and Year 1 are a wonderful opportunity to have your child’s development screened by a trained Occupational Therapist in a relaxed and meaningful environment. Fine and gross motor, visual and auditory, written or pre-writing, attention, sensory, behaviour and emotional skills are all screened in a 40 minute consult. You are provided with an electronic screening report at the completion of the screen with advice on where to from here. If a child requires other supports, this is discussed and onward referral facilitated.
OT Check Ups provide peace of mind to parents and also serve as an excellent way to track progress over time, and communicate this with their teacher. This service is offered at Manning, Mosman Park and Murdoch (St John of God) clinics, and costs $90.
