AIM Therapy offers Occupational Therapy, Speech Pathology, Psychology and Physiotherapy assessment at each of our main premises (Wembley, Joondalup and Canning Vale). The AIM Therapy assessment involves 1 or 2 x 1 hour sessions per discipline. The assessment can take place at one of our premises, at a child’s school or home. Whilst it is not necessary, it is preferred that it takes place at one of our premises with a parent/caregiver present.
1. Caregiver and Educator Questionnaires
The child’s parent or caregiver will need to fill in an on-line questionnaire. The child’s teacher will also need to fill in an on-line questionnaire.
2. Identifying Goals for Therapy
We pride ourselves on our assessment process being unique to your child. Our assessment process starts off with identifying goal areas for therapy. We take time to read through both caregiver and teacher questionnaires to select the most appropriate standardised and non-standardised assessments. Possible areas of assessment and therapy and more information on each can be found by hovering over each discipline on the top menu.
We ensure we regularly review all our assessment tools to make sure we are always using the most up to date gold standard assessments possible for children. Our Senior therapists review and update our assessments each month in line with new research. The assessment process aims to uncover the most important factors that would benefit from therapy in order to achieve children’s goals as efficiently as possible.
4. Refining Goals
Following the assessment, the recommended therapy goals will be emailed to the child’s caregiver. We ensure goals are specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and have time frames to ensure the fastest time to achieving goals.
5. Written Feedback
It is highly recommended that children receive a report that includes a summary of each assessment carried out, analysis of assessment and recommendations to improve the referred areas. If appropriate, therapy sessions focusing on the achievement of specific goals outlined in the report will then commence.
