Our Screening Consultation usually takes about 60-90 minutes. The purpose of this Screening Consultation is two fold: Most importantly it allows us to assess whether the types of services we have to offer are indeed appropriate for your child's needs. Secondly, it allows a therapist to answer your questions in depth regarding the details of assessment and intervention.
The intake does take time, however at GoCarer we believe that a child's diagnosis or reason for referral is merely the starting point. Our assessments and Action Plan is unique to each child and is based upon each child's strengths and weakness, likes and dislikes, individual needs, and the needs of their family.
If you've had an initial screening, our team might have identified some additional support GoCarer can offer you. The next step would be to book an evaluation session or therapy assessment depending on how many existing reports your child has.
If you decide after the initial screening that GoCarer services aren't for you at this stage, you can still benefit from the advice and screening report produced by our specialists. We do appreciate your honest feedback so we can continuously review and improve our services.
Our Screening Consultation is free if you live in Plymouth and are based in a PL postcode. Our Consultation is £120 if you live outside of Plymouth, but we're happy to conduct the Screening in our office at Plymouth Science Park for free if you are able to travel to this location.
Following our Screening Consultation, we recommend a pathway that may include the following services:
1 hour session for our multi-disciplinary team to observe and offer an initial evaluation of your child's development. Following the Evaluation Session, an Action Plan is produced that will detail the specific interventions and actions we will take to support your family.
1 hour session for our multi-disciplinary team to implement your Action Plan. During each session we work on the developmental areas identified in most recent Evaluation Session. We continuously re-evaluate our strategy and approach through feedback across our sequence of Therapeutic Care sessions.
An optional service that is very useful if your child does not have any existing assessment reports. Our Therapist team uses a range of standardised assessments and tools such as the COPM, SPM and CELF to identify any cognitive, sensory, motor, speech and other difficulties. We will also collaborate with your child's school to produce a report relevant to their education setting. Following the Therapy Assessment, we produce a comprehensive report on your child's development.

"My child really enjoys coming to the workshops, GoCarer provides a wide range of good activities that capture interests for all the children. The workshops have been really beneficial to my child as it’s given them the opportunity to build confidence interacting with unfamiliar adults and develop social skills to help them work with other children of different ages. These workshops have also helped my child to feel much more relaxed after finishing school, and they’re much happier."

"My son has a fantastic time at the workshops, and really enjoys the craft activities available to him. These workshops allow him to really show his creative side, and gives him the chance to work with different people in a different environment to the classroom, and this has helped him to feel a lot more comfortable at school. Every week he’s really looking forward to coming to the workshop and it’s had a noticeable benefit to his mood when he comes home after the workshops."

"We love these sessions! It's the first time my son has asked if 'his thing' is on, and the first time ever he's been interested in coming along to something. He interacts so well with the children in the group, and it's really helped him socialise."
