Before you visit Kids In Sync, you will need to record all the issues you feel your child has, including specific examples and any observations from yourself, other family members of friends. You will need to think about how your child behaves, how they communicate and socialise, their physical capabilities as well as any difficulties you perceive or know about at nursery or school.
Before your appointment we usually ask you to complete a questionnaire/s including a Birth and Developmental questionnaire (completed by parent) for the child.
During your first assessment appointment we will discuss the information you have brought in and will assess your child using a variety of different assessment tools as appropriate. This may include assessment of your child whilst moving, working at a desk, through conversation and observation when given instructions.
This first consultation and assessment may take up to 2.5 hours after which we will synthesise all the information we have and write up a report. It may be necessary for you and your child to meet with other therapists eg Speech and Language Therapist, Physiotherapist, Behavioural Therapist, Nutritional Therapist, Kinesiologist, in order to gain a more comprehensive view of your child’s strengths and difficulties.
On receipt of your initial assessment report you will be invited to discuss the findings and recommendations and put together a therapy plan that both meets your child’s needs and is workable for you.
Generally speaking depending on the child’s difficulties we would normally recommend a block of sessions where the child would receive direct one on one treatment for a minimum of 50 minutes once a week.
Sessions with Speech and Language and other specialists can be arranged and integrated into the child’s programme. We will also give you a plan to follow at home and can visit your child’s school to discuss how to best implement our recommendations in the school environment.
We will organise a follow up meeting after an agreed number of therapy sessions to assess progress and fine tune your child’s programme according to their needs. Further therapy sessions will be discussed and agreed as appropriate. Whilst it is difficult to say at the outset how many hour sessions an individual child might need we generally would recommend a minimum of 12-15 in order to see tangible improvement.
You may find your child requires top up sessions at a later date once they have finished their initial block of treatment. We are always happy to speak to you about any concerns and will guide you in the most appropriate course of action.
If you want to talk to another parent about their experiences at Kids In Sync, we would be very happy to arrange this.
We are always interested to hear how our children are progressing, how they have overcome their initial difficulties, what new skills they have mastered and how they are getting on in general.
We look forward to being of service to you and in helping your child overcome their challenges and realise their true potential.
