What do Dynamic Development Occupational Therapy Service do?

The team at Dynamic Development Occupational Therapy Service provide a wide range of services to help children, young people and their families reach their goals. They provide a number of in-depth and comprehensive assessments, that assess children’s sensory, motor and visual skills, along with assessments that focus on children’s social and emotional development. They also offer more focused assessments that look at specific areas of need, such as visual perceptual and motor skills and screening for preparedness for school. Full written reports are included with each assessment.

How Dynamic Development Occupational Therapy Service help children?

Following on from the assessments, the team at Dynamic Development Occupational Therapy Service meet with you to go through the reports and to discuss with you how they feel it will be best to help your child going forward. They will design a programme that implements the recommendations identified in the assessments and from there, will provide specialist and targeted therapy, tailored to your child’s needs. The exact therapy approach will be determined by the strengths and areas of need identified in the assessments and reports, in discussion with you about how best to meet your child’s goals.

I just wanted to share with everybody just how awesome I think Jenna and Dynamic Development Occupational Therapy Service is! My 6-year-old started seeing Jenna early this year on a regular basis after being diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder. When he first started, he couldn’t hop or do a 2 footed jump properly. His school has just had athletics day and did lots of build up my practicing the events, my 6 year old refused to participate in any of the practices.. On the day though he gave everything 100% and we have just found out he came second in the triple jump! I told him all along that I am so proud of him giving everything a go, but that has just proved all his hard work with Jenna’s help can have amazing results!
