Sensory assessment

Many of you know my Dd3 has a dx of Asd she is also hypermobile in all her joints. She has what I believe to be sensory issues but sometimes it is difficult to separate these from her other difficulties.

I have been thinking about getting her assessed by an OT. She has had an OT assessment as part of her Asd assessment which included a sentence in the report about sensory issues.

She only has one year left at primary and I really think I need to understand more about what causes her difficulties ie is it proprioception issues that cause her to fall and walk into things or is it hypermobility?

I just want opinions really because I dont want to waste my money but I feel that I need to be able to explain her difficulties when she moves schools.

So is a sensory assessment worth having or not?

Thankyou for reading smile

mareeya - I have been told that the NHS in these parts does not do SI therapy although they do test for it hmm.

However, as I am appealing the LA is willing to pay for one hour a week with a private (also has to be post-grad and qualified) OT to provide SIT if DS1 attends m/s rather than OOC indi ss with onsite therapists.

It is amazing what provision appears when you appeal.
