What Is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational therapists engage directly with the patients by communicating with the family and the person to understand the person’s individual needs. They do a thorough assessment of the person’s physical, mental, and behavioural needs to make an effective and detailed treatment plan. After a plan is created, the OT works with the patients and has multiple sessions to help them move toward their goals and check their progress along the way.
How Do Occupational Therapists Evaluate ASD?
Evaluation of the condition is extremely important before making any treatment plan. OT can only make an effective plan after diagnosing the needs and state of the participant. They use several screening tools to evaluate the patients, like an autism checklist, a sensory profile, or diagnostic criteria. While assessing the patient, the OT will observe their communication skills, social skills, senses, attention span, posture, balance, body language, and many more things. After the evaluation is done, the OT makes a treatment plan along with the family of the patient to come up with effective goals and coping techniques for the participant.
