Our Handwriting Group will help kids ages 5-10 develop skills for efficient and neat handwriting. Areas worked on include correct pencil grip, letter formation, letter reversals, spacing of letters and good body posture. Since handwriting is a complex skill, a multi-faceted approach is used. Fine motor and visual motor activities along with sensory motor activities are used to develop the proprioceptive, vestibular, tactile and visual systems. We use the Handwriting Without Tears workbooks. This group starts Wednesday, March 27 and runs weekly until May 1st, 5pm-6pm. The 6 session program is $330. R
We will be holding our Handwriting & Yoga Summer Camp the week of June 11th. This camp is ideal for kids between the ages of 5 and 10 who need to improve their writing legibility, have issues with letter reversals, spacing, and correct letter formation. Led by an occupational therapist, our campers will undertake activities designed to improve their gross and fine motor skills and body awareness. The yoga aspect will give kids the skills they need to improve their attention and learn self-relaxation techniques for stressful situations.
Camp cost is $400. Siblings get a $20 discount.
