Handwriting Block of OT Sessions at OT Therapy
Handwriting is an important aspect of childhood, incorporating a variety of complex and intricate muscle movements and visual perception skills. Handwriting is not a simple task, and if left underdeveloped can become a problem later in academic life.
The necessary skills required to produce legible writing are usually acquired in early school years, and fine-tuned over the remainder of the school period. Children who struggle with handwriting often develop an abnormal grip to compensate for the lack of muscle development in the hand. The grip is usually the first sign of noticing a child who has poor handwriting.
At OT Therapy we can offer you a block on intervention to correct your child's handwriting over 4 - 6 sessions.
At OT Therapy we believe a motor in a multi-sensory approach which assists the child's motor planning and visual memory of the letters. One of the many multi-sensory tools is our Sensory lightbox which the children love to learn on.
