PMT INTERVENTION PROCESS

Every psychomotor intervention begins with an initial meeting with the caregiver to carry out a thorough anamnesis and ask for medical exams if needed (EEG, MRI, Audiogram) followed by a precise and rigorous evaluation process which is based on a fine clinical qualitative observation as well as on various standardized quantitative psychomotor tests chosen according to the reason for the consultation, the age and the psychomotor function being assessed. Thus, each test will have its specificity. Following the assessment sessions, a detailed psychomotor report describing the observations made and stating the results of the standardized PMT tests is elaborated including a psychomotor diagnosis which will help in setting the intervention plan.

PMT INTERVENTION PLAN

The intervention plan includes designing a therapeutic project with specific short and medium-term objectives as well as providing the needed recommendations to be preferably applied at home and in school settings to reach better global results and goals generalization. It also allows suggesting additional referrals to other specialists since Psychomotor Therapists always collaborate with and work in multidisciplinary teams (doctors, speech therapists, psychologists, special educators, occupational therapists, ABA therapists), where each professional has his/her field of expertise. The PMT plan includes regular follow-ups with nurseries and schools (for toddlers, school aged and teenagers) as well as communicating and collaborating with the other healthcare professionals working with the person in care.
