Evaluation

i-3lm7rjw-x3At Ready Set GO Therapy we find that our comprehensive evaluation process lends itself to the provision of efficient, effective treatment. Our evaluation package includes a one-on-one evaluation session, parent, teacher, and other caregiver interview, a comprehensive report and home program and a follow up parent conference.

It is through this process that we investigate foundational gross motor, fine motor, and visual perceptual skills which may be affecting a child’s functional performance at home, school, or within the community. The evaluation session is 2 hours of one-on-one assessment which includes a combination of standardized assessment and structured clinical observations.

Some of the evaluation tools commonly used include:

Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency, 2nd Edition (BOT-2)
Peabody Developmental Motor Scales, 2nd Edition (PDMS-2)
Miller Assessment for Preschoolers (MAP)
Sensory Integration and Praxis Tests (SIPT)
Developmental Test of Visual Perception, 3rd Edition (DTVP-3)
Test of Visual Perceptual Skills, 3rd Edition, (TVPS-3)
Beery-Buktenica Developmental Test of Visual-Motor Integration, 6th Edition (Beery VMI)
The Print Tool
Sensory Profile 2
Sensory Processing Measure

Treatment Sessions

i-fwq3kh3-x3Treatment sessions at Ready Set GO Therapy are packed with 50 minutes of “just right” challenges for a child. In a safe, enticing environment, with the skill and careful scaffolding of their therapist, children challenge themselves to reach the next level of development. Each session is carefully planned and built upon the last session to maximize outcomes and help children and families reach their goals. Our objective is to have children leaving their sessions feeling successful and wanting to come back for more, all the while, building the foundational skills they need to meet therapy goals.

Intensive therapy services are available and can be highly valuable as a child begins the therapeutic process. Sessions may last from 50 – 110 minutes and may be conducted 3 or more times per a week for several weeks. It is common to see very fast initial progress with this more intensive approach and summer or school vacations may lend themselves well to this scheduling.

Consultation

i-phpnfvx-xlActive consultation with families, schools, and other community providers proves invaluable to many clients as we work across a child’s many environments to ensure the best possible outcome.

School visits often help provide insight to the school staff about why a child might be struggling in a certain area. Teachers and therapists schedule an hour observation at the school and then a follow up discussion with the teacher and written recommendations are provided. Home and community visits can also be scheduled to assist in creating an optimal environment and meet your child’s needs.

Consultation with other providers such as speech, behavioral, or physical therapists can be conducted via phone calls, emails, or in-person meetings upon request.

School Groups

i-jksm9bw-xlThe early years of school provide an excellent opportunity for children to develop the motor and perceptual skills that set the foundation for academic success. Small motor groups focusing on these foundations may easily be incorporated into a school’s curriculum from preschool through 2nd grade. Therapists are available to design sensory motor groups and provide ongoing consultation to schools.

Community Education

i-bb3ndws-xlTherapists are available to conduct in-services or presentations to teachers, parents, or other providers.

Common topics include but are not limited to:

  • Motor skill development and its relation to academic success
  • Sensory processing and its influence on behavior
  • Home and classroom strategies for accommodating different sensory profiles
  • Simple, fun activities to help promote motor skill development in toddlers and preschoolers
