Occupational Therapy Standardised Assessment for DCD (dyspraxia)

Dyspraxia/DCD Ireland provides occupational therapy assessments to assist with DCD Diagnosis for children and young people aged between 5 and 21 years. These assessments are carried out by our Occupational Therapist (OT) Stephen Hodnett. Stephen has worked with children and young people in a number of settings both as a CORU registered occupational therapist and as a teacher for over a decade.

The DCD diagnostic assessment process includes:

  • Speaking to families via phone or video call
  • Liaising with schools
  • Conducting an in-person assessment of fine and gross motor performance, visual motor integration, sensory assessment (if applicable) and handwriting speed (if applicable).
  • Production of a detailed report with outcomes and follow on recommendations.
  • Follow-up call to explain the report and the recommendations contained within if required.

In-person assessments take place at our Limerick Clinic only.

The cost of the assessment is €425 for members and €450 for non-members and includes both the assessment and a comprehensive report.

If you wish to book an assessment, please use the booking calendar located further down this webpage.

When booking a slot, you will receive our Paediatric Occupational Therapy Referral Form in the email confirmation. Please complete this form and return it to stephen@dyspraxia.ie as soon as possible (consent forms can be signed separately if required).

If you would like further information in relation to getting an assessment for your child or yourself (if you are aged 21 years or under) please read our leaflet on Assessment and Diagnosis of Developmental Coordination Disorder (Dyspraxia) in Children
