Support Visits

Support visits may be advised as part of a child’s therapeutic support package.

The therapist would visit your child in their own home or within their educational setting to identify the barriers to their participation and ability to function.

Home Visits

1) To troubleshoot a daily task or advise on creating a regulating environment;

  • The therapist will visit the child in their own home.
  • The time of the visit would be planned to allow the therapist to observe the child at the time of day they experience as challenging (e.g. getting ready in the morning, a family mealtime, or playing in the garden).

2) To develop a Sensory Diet programme;

  • The therapist may visit in order to create a bespoke sensory diet programme that can be carried out within the child’s home; the programme would be tailored to the environment and the equipment available.
  • The therapist can advise on how to create a regulating environment in the home based on the child’s sensory preferences.

3) To work with other professionals supporting your child;

  • The therapist could conduct joint sessions alongside other therapists such as a Speech and Language Therapist, Psychologist or Physiotherapist working in your home if it is felt a Multidisciplinary approach would be optimal.
  • The therapist could work with home education teachers to support your child’s access to education.

School/Nursery visit

1) To provide recommendations (child without one to one support);

  • The therapist will observe the child during times of day that are known to be challenging and identify how their difficulties present within the school environment.
  • The therapist will liaise with key staff, provide education related to your child’s needs and develop an action plan for in school support. Recommendations can be provided in the form of a short report or verbally to staff on site, on the day.
  • In addition, observations during the visit will enable the therapist to identify goals that can be addressed within one to one sessions or programmes.

2) To develop a Sensory Diet programme;

  • The therapist would speak with school staff and explore the school environment to allow them to note the potential therapeutic spaces and identify the available equipment that could be included in a bespoke sensory diet programme.

3) To work with Learning Support Staff (Child with one to one support);

  • The therapist could work directly with your child and their one to one learning support staff to integrate Occupational Therapy programmes within the education environment.
