Measuring the Impact of the Assessment Service

The online survey has been designed to capture both the impact of the assessment process and to determine if improvements could be made to the format of the assessment. To date there has not been a single suggestion as to how the process could be improved. Feedback from the Children’s Occupational Therapy Team has been very positive and they strongly support the concept of multi-agency assessments.

“I have consistently found the Physical Difficulty and Medical Service to be very committed to student-centred assessment and support. Peter Fletcher in particular is highly invested in multiagency working and always makes the effort to work jointly with occupational therapy colleagues.

The Physical Difficulty and Medical Service has provided invaluable support to many students across the city. The assessment reports are always focused on feasible, practical solutions for overcoming barriers and including students in educational activities.”

Jen McAnuff, Lead Children’s OT.

“I am always contacted for advice and to inform me an assessment has been requested, and offered the opportunity to do joint working for the best needs of the child.”

Jo Filby, Children’s OT.
