Handwriting Club 2019 Starts July 2nd Tuesdays & Thursdays
Kiddo Active Therapy is excited to announce the 3 edition of our Handwriting Club! If your child is having trouble tracing or copying basic pre-writing shapes, if they complain of fatigue or discomfort while writing, if they struggle with holding a pencil, if they have trouble writing letters fluidly and clearly or if they have a hard time writing on the lines, this group may be the right fit for them! Three different age groups will be offered, each having content tailored to the children’s developmental level. This club has been designed to use creative multisensory activities and structured teaching techniques, with inspiration from the Handwriting Without Tears program, to help children develop the foundational skills necessary for successful handwriting development.
Groups will be led by two occupational therapists. Each session will begin with a gross motor and fine motor warm up, followed by guided writing activities and will conclude with a 10-15 minute overview with parents/caregivers for carryover of lessons in the home and school environments.
Who is this club for: - Children going into Kindergarten in the fall 2019 who may be having trouble holding a writing tool, copying basic shapes (ex. lines, circle, cross, square), recognizing letters and numbers and maintaining a good seated posture.
- Children going into Grade 1 or 2 in the fall 2019 who may be struggling with letter/number formation and placement, word and sentence structure, page organization, pencil use, posture, and keeping up with writing demands in the classroom.
