This article presents a case study of the assessment and treatment of an 8-year-old boy with developmental disabilities following meningitis. It aims to explore the extent to which clinical child psychologists and paediatric occupational therapists share a common frame of reference that enables them to work jointly, in an effective and complementary way, to improve clinical standards.

Following a combined programme of intervention, the outcome assessment showed significant improvement in the specific components of visual attention and visual search. However, more generalised improvement in daily living skills was not apparent. The implications for joint working between health professionals and for collaboration with teachers are discussed.
