Dysgraphia Assessments

Pre-diagnostic assessment to identify the underlying contributors to difficulty with written expression; pencil control, underlying fine motor skills, spelling, grammar, punctuation, cognitive loading and organisation of written tasks. Our OT’s use a combination of assessment tools to identify if the functional writing difficulties are indicative of Motor-Based Dysgraphia. A Caregiver only session may be initially conducted, followed by a minimum 90 minute assessment with the client. A report will then be prepared and an assessment feedback session will be booked in with the Caregiver where required. Please note, Motor Based Dysgraphia can only be diagnosed 9 years and older and requires 6 month of intervention post initial assessment to meet diagnostic criteria. Additionally, Year 11 and 12 students completing WACE will require an updated Dysgraphia assessment if requesting special considerations for examinations. Our OT’s can provide updated reports and support with application to SCSA. Please allow a few weeks for our OT’s to prepare this report for you.
