Our educational and child psychologists can carry out physical and sensory assessments. Physical and sensory difficulties can relate to many aspects of an individual.
Within educational and child psychology, the main areas covered by the term ‘physical and sensory needs’ are connected to visual processing, perceptual processing, motor skills and over or under sensitivity in certain senses.
We provide a broad range of physical and sensory assessments including:
Sensory profiling assesses each sense and the extent to which they are processed and the impact on functional behaviour.
Physical and sensory assessments can be carried out by educational and child psychologists, occupational therapists and sensory integration therapists. Our educational and child psychologists can assess and interpret the results in relation to how physical and sensory needs impact learning. We work closely with our in-house occupational therapists and sensory integration therapists.
Physical and sensory assessments will be chosen depending on the individual, their circumstances and what we are specifically assessing. Our team are able to use a variety of physical and sensory assessments, including:
If you are not sure which physical and sensory assessment would be best for your needs then do not worry as it will be discussed during the initial consultation. If you require a specific physical and sensory assessment which is not listed above then please contact us.
Following a physical and sensory assessment from our psychologists, the option to purchase a written report is available. To facilitate a joined-up approach we can also liaise with any professionals working with the child or young person upon request. If a referral to an external service is required then we will assist you wherever possible. Our team, school staff or parents and carers can all work together to achieve the best outcome if an intervention is suggested as the next step. You can read more about our reports and interventions.
Arrange an initial discussion to find out how we can benefit your education setting. The initial discussion lasts 2 hours and is a starting point to identify needs. The cost is £180.
