Completing the Development Intake Assessment Form

Why is it important to fill out the lengthy Developmental Intake Form and mail them back before the evaluation?

You Know Your Child Best

Since caregivers spend a great deal of time with their children, they know their child best. Therefore, it is important for the Occupational Therapist and Speech Language Pathologist to understand how children react to various sensory inputs in their daily lives, including home and school.

Although the Occupational Therapist and Speech Language Pathologist will observe reactions to various sensory inputs during the evaluation, it is imperative to get a better picture of children from their caregivers.

Better Evaluation Preparation

Reviewing the information before the evaluation is helpful to the therapist when setting up the environment before the evaluation. Additionally, the DIA provides the therapist with the caregiver’s main concerns, which are used for planning treatment goals.
