Let's Begin with an Evaluation

Before your evaluation appointment, you will complete intake paperwork to share background information about your child. If there is a relevant medical history or your child is working with other professionals, we may also request records for review before the evaluation.


During the evaluation session, your speech or occupational therapist will use a variety of tools to gain a comprehensive picture of your child's skills, such as:

  • parent/caregiver interview

  • observation of your child during various activities

  • interaction with your child

  • informal assessment and/or standardized assessments.


This information will then be shared verbally and in a written report. A treatment plan will be developed based on the results, your child's unique strengths and needs, and your goals for your child. 

The Speech Solutions Approach to Speech & Occupational Therapy

At Speech Solutions we believe every child deserves personalized therapy that will build upon their strengths to help them develop new skills in a positive and family-friendly environment.

We care deeply about every client and family we work with and dedicate time to offer resources and support that extend beyond the therapy room. With an experienced team of speech and occupational therapists, we are also able to deliver collaborative care, involving everyone on your child's team so we can work together towards their goals. 

Our speech or occupational therapists provide parent/caregiver education and training during the sessions so you can feel confident working with your child at home. We will also provide specific activities to do at home, and we will help you find ways to incorporate practice into the rhythm of your daily life.

Occupational Therapy for Fine Motor Skills, Handwriting, Hand-Eye Coordination, Self-Care, and Sensory Integration

Occupational Therapy

Children's lives are made up of meaningful activities that vary based on age. These activities are our occupations. For example, a toddler's occupations are learning to play, socialize with peers, feed themselves, etc. An older child's occupations may include attending school, participating in after-school activities, doing chores at home, and possibly working.


When a child faces strength, coordination, or sensory challenges that impact their ability to function in daily life, occupational therapy may help. Your occupational therapist will tailor each session to your child's unique needs as they help your child develop skills such as:

  • Writing, coloring, cutting, and other fine motor skills

  • Using two hands together to manipulate objects

  • Increasing strength and coordination of the hands and arms

  • Self-help skills such as dressing, toileting, self-feeding, bathing, etc.

  • Processing, integrating, and organizing sensory information

  • Hand-eye coordination
