This will include a case history, brief observation of and discussion of the strengths and needs of your child, and then the possible next steps should you decide to proceed with therapy. At the end of the consulation, you will recieve a written summary. Please contact me to discuss your childs needs and we can see if an initial consultation would be an appropriate next step.
Occasionally it may be necessary for your child to be assessed furthur on a seperate session. Examples of this may include: clinical need for more indepth assessment or for more complex cases a differential diagnosis involving another professional may be required. The additional cost of this will be discussed with you before proceeding. Following the assessment, a report will be completed and shared with you.
For children and young people with Autism, it may be possible for an Specialist Occupational Therapist and myself to offer a joint assessment based on the SCERTS framework in order to provide a holistic plan for you and those around your child to work collaboratively in order to support your child to develop their social communication skills and ability to regulate their regulation.
