Hi all
Can anyone recommend a really good OT in London, ideally North London, to carry out a sensory asessment for my DS?
Many thanks

Yes - Jennifer Hall, based in Maida Vale. Very expensive but excellent! OT report cost £650. That said, she didn't include that many recommendations for how to put in place solutions at home (maybe because she wanted more sessions?!) - in fact our NHS assessment was far more helpful in that sense. Have you gone down NHS path? Good luck x

London's Children's Practice in Wimpole Street - Miri Horovitz. The assessment is thorough and our report was 14 pages, full of recommendations for each area of weakness... it's been invaluable! smile

We used Grit Craig ( independent Occupational Therapist ) for our dd. She is based in East London but traveled to North London to see our dd. She is extremely thorough and produced a detailed report with many practical recommendations that have made a huge difference to our dd's sensory issues. I highly recommend her.
