Our Executive Assistant
When we are introduced to a child, we perform one of our assessments to exercise independent judgement.
Therapy is focused on each individual treatment plan, as advised by the senior therapist.
Therapy progress is provided on a termly basis.
We require consistency to achieve best results.
Discounts are offered when a block of sessions are pre-purchased (terms & conditions apply).
Interview with the parents
Parents have the opportunity to discuss with the senior therapist matters of concern and bring anything that needs to be brought to the therapist’s attention.
Assessment with the child
Depending on each case, in a standardised manner, it includes an assessment of:
Sensory processing and modulation
Gross and fine motor skills
Motor planning and organisation
At the end of the assessment, the senior therapist informs the parents of his observations and recommended plan of therapy
A report is produced within 4 weeks from date of assessment.
Having been assessed, a therapist is allocated to maintain consistency and to achieve set therapy goals as instructed by the senior therapist.
After approximately 4 therapy sessions, parents are recommended to attend a therapist – parent workshop/consultation.
Parents receive written feedback on a termly basis. Verbal feedback is also provided during an allocated session at the parent’s discretion
After a period of 6 months and onwards, parents are recommended to schedule a review assessment.
Assisted to attune with their child, improve communication, behaviour and self-regulation at home and school.
Supported to develop cognitive, executive function, social communication and emotional regulation skills.
Developed based on individual family needs, built on evidence based multidisciplinary approaches.
Focused on growing emerging skills in therapy and helping child generalise skills across home and school settings.
"When our son started at Hopscotch, aged 3, he was having great difficulty in doing the same things that his peers and it impacted on his enjoyment of all aspects of life. The therapists immediately established a rapport with him and through their playful intervention the visits became one of the highlights of his week.
After almost two years of regular therapy the transformation has been terrific. As his physical ability has shot forward, he has far greater confidence, enjoys sport and a variety of activities, and is now looking forward to his entry into primary school. It has been an invaluable foundation for his childhood; the best thing we could have done."
