I have to go to the BIg City with J today week. While there, I thought I'd take the opportunity to see an Occupational Therapist (OT) as there's only one locally. The one I've found and who has a space that day does not specialise in sensory issues. She tells me she will test for fine motor skills, manual dexterity, visual-spatial skill and something called visual-constructive (?) skill. It's not cheap and I wonder... is this going to tell me anything useful? As far as I can tell, J doesn't have particular difficulties with fine motor tasks but there may be things I'm not seeing. And for the rest... does it mean anything to anybody? Would make more sense to see someone who specialises in sensory stuff? I wonder if I'd be better off saving my money and taking J to the swimming pool in the city? I feel somewhat disheartened with these constant tests that almost always have the result "within normal range" and don't help in any concrete way. But I am open to persuasion!
