Occupational Therapy Assessment: A Case Study


Published on 6 Jun 2017

Meet Will, a 5-year-old boy whose teachers and parents noticed that he was struggling with everyday activities. After assessment, Will began occupational therapy services in June of 2016. Will had trouble with motor skills and sensory processing, which resulted in decreased coordination, balance, visual tracking, and strength. This video highlights snippets of assessments showing Will's progress at the beginning, middle, and end of his occupational therapy intervention. Will made progress through graduated play-based activities that addressed his differences in sensory and motor functions. Watch the results of Will’s hard work unfold over his 10 months at St. David’s Center.
