The service activity includes the following:

  • Provide detailed motor skills assessments of children and young people referred for intervention.
  • Devise intervention programmes to be delivered through an adult working on a daily basis with the identified child or young person.
  • Update and monitor the programmes of individual children and young people.
  • Provide information regarding the success of intervention.
  • Contribute to assessments of special educational need as appropriate.
  • Offer training in the implementation and delivery of programmes.
