Experienced OT in search of kids…

Posted on: June 5, 2008

A friend of mine, an OT in Central/Eastern Mass, is in training to administer the SIPT and is looking for a kid to run the test on before her next training session (before 7/19).  As she puts it, “This is a win – win situation. It gives me the opportunity to work with a child with this tool who has these issues and it is the opportunity for a family to receive the information from a $1800 test free of charge by an experienced clinician.”

Here’s the parameters for the kid to be tested:

  1. An a-typical child between 5-8.11, without a neurological diagnosis, who has average to above average intelligence.
  2. This child can either be know to have sensory processing issues *or* can be suspected to have sensory processing issues (motor planning, visual concerns, body awareness, poor school performance, etc..)
  3. Said child *must* be able to be tested for a minimum of one hour and then another hour the following week or one hour – break – another hour the same day.
  4. Said child will most likely be taped either in a center *or* at a local playground for possible use in a classroom setting.

If you are interested or know of someone who might be, drop me a line or a comment and I will put you in touch with Lisa.
