Frequently Asked Questions
Can you complete a face to face assessment?
Kim will have capacity to complete face to face assessments in Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, North London and West London.
The cost of the assessment will be £750-1000 depending on the requirements. This will include the initial parent interview, a school visit, completion of assessment tools, report and a follow up call. Registering is not a commitment to purchase. Kim will contact you to understand your child’s needs and if she is able to help.

What will the screening report look like?
The report is a summary of the results from your questionnaires. Where relevant, you will also receive suggested support ideas. Here is a sample report. It is created from the information that you provide in the questionnaires.
How long will it take to receive my child’s report?
We aim to send reports within 10 working days of you completing the online questionnaire. We prioritise reports in order of questionnaire receipt, NOT payment.
When does the report processing period start?
The processing period for reports starts once we have received the completed online questionnaire from you. It will likely take you a day or two to be ready to complete these, as there are some activities you need to do with your child before you complete the questionnaire.
Can I have my report quicker?
Kim is sorry, but there is no option to speed up the report writing process. She feels that a 10 working day turn around is much quicker than any other service currently offers.
Can I submit a written copy of the assessment?
Our assessment process is designed to be completed online. We can accept a written copy from you, however there is an administration fee of £80. You will need to pay this in advance of the written copy being processed.
How is the report created so quickly and at such a low cost?
After twenty years of writing reports, Kim knows that the best use of the occupational therapist’s expertise is to analyse the results. This is where she focusses her time. A template is used to create the draft report. This pulls in the background information that you have typed into the questionnaires. Kim then scores and interprets the sensory processing questionnaire. Next, she tailors the report scores and recommendations to meet your child’s specific sensory processing patterns. The final report will be specific to your child’s needs.
I am still confused about navigating the OT assessment process??
