Measuring our impact

It is incredibly important to Kim and the team to demonstrate the impact our resources have on the adults who are using them and the children they are designed to support. Since the beginning, we have engaged with educators and parents to receive feedback on our training and recommendations for improvement.  In the last two years we have also been evaluating our training in further depth.  On this page you will find

  • Our annual impact reports

  • Other publications exploring our impact

  • Our theory of change

  • Our ongoing and planned evaluations

GriffinOT Impact Reports

Our first impact report was released in March 2021.  We summarised our progress over the last four years including feedback and results from our evaluations.  The report also includes a timeline outlining our key activities and our plans for 2021.  You can read the report here.

Theory of Change

Kim has worked with, Cambridge Social Ventures, the Fair Education Alliance and Educate to create GriffinOT’s theory of change.  Our ultimate aim is that children with sensory, regulation and/or motor skill challenges will receive appropriate and adequate support in the classroom and at home.  At the first level, our training provides educators and parents with the knowledge and confidence they need to implement supports for these children.  Our second ambition is to see a systems change whereby additional training on special education needs is either included in teacher training programmes or becomes mandatory continuing professional development for all teachers.  Kim’s final goal is to embed occupational therapy expertise into the school day through programmes and schemes of work that can be run by teachers.

Website articles exploring our impact

These articles on the GriffinOT website explore out impact in further depth.  There is are a mix of participant surveys and case-studies.

External publications and presentations

Kim is working hard to spread the news of GriffinOT’s accomplishments.  Here are some of our publications and presentations.

Our goal is to teach as many educators and parents as possible how they can support their children. Impact measurement is important to us as we want to make sure we  are achieving this goal.

Current and planned evaluations

We are continually monitoring feedback from participants on our training.  These are the formal evaluations Kim has planned for 2021-22.

Can you help?

We are always open to support from academics and therapists who would be interested in supporting our evaluations.  And, for schools who would be prepared to take part in return for a summary of the impact our training has had for their staff.  Please contact us (Training@GriffinOT.com) if you would like to help.
