Is an OT/PT evaluation needed prior to providing occupational or physical therapy respectively?

Yes, if occupational and/or physical therapy will be related services on the IEP, a licensed OT and/or PT, as appropriate, will need to provide an assessment before occupational or physical therapy are provided to the child. This process may or may not involve the use of a formal assessment instrument. In some cases a physician’s prescription is required before the therapist evaluates the child.
