QUESTIONNAIRE

The questionnaire provides information concerning the early developmental history of the individual and their current presenting difficulties which allows me to advise you if further investigation at an Initial Assessment is recommended.


INITIAL ASSESSMENT

This takes place at The Movement and Learning Centre where a case history is developed and a battery of non-invasive physical tests of coordination, balance and postural control is undertaken. The outcome of these tests will indicate whether or not a programme of intervention is appropriate.


BASELINE ASSESSMENT

If intervention is appropriate a comprehensive battery of tests is then undertaken to provide baseline assessment of:
•    Coordination, balance and postural control;
•    Central nervous system functioning;
•    Auditory processing and visual perceptual abilities;
•    Working memory.


HOME PROGRAMME

Intervention is a programme of non-invasive developmental exercises to remediate difficulties with coordination, balance and postural control central nervous system dysfunction. This is done at home and takes no more than 5-10 minutes daily. The efficacy of the intervention is based on consistency of application meaning the programme should be done every day.


REVIEW APPOINTMENTS

This takes place every 4-6 weeks to assess progress and develop the home programme.
