Sensory & Motor Assessment

Are you unsure about your young child's development? We can help you by performing a sensorimotor assessment of your child and thereby detect any deficits as well as formulate a treatment plan.

An initial assessment involves:
  • Understanding concerns
  • Finding out background: medical, developmental and family history
  • Detailed evaluation of muscles and joints including strength, length, alignment; core stability
  • Posture in sitting and standing; neuro-development including anti-gravity ability and co-ordination balance responses and gross motor skills. Also evaluate sensory integration, writing, fine motor skills and visual perceptual skills
  • Interpretation of findings taking early medical and developmental history into consideration
  • Advice about how we can help
  • Decision with parent about plan of action.
