This program engages children in activities that encourage social participation while promoting their fine, gross, sensory and perceptual motor skills. A combination of group and individual therapy gives children the opportunity to play with peers and work on individual goals. We guide the child in gaining confidence, regulating behaviors, working with others, and performing life skills. Individualized goals will be established during the first session to guide individual and group interventions throughout the program.

This program is for children who demonstrate handwriting and fine motor challenges that require specialized instruction. Handwriting challenges can often lead to behaviors that further interrupt the child’s ability to learn. Group and individual activities promote sensory organization, fine motor coordination, eye coordination, pre-writing/writing techniques. In addition, children learn to self-regulate, identify coping strategies, and organize work space and materials. Team work is also encouraged during group activities. Individualized goals will be established during the first session to guide individual and group interventions throughout the program.
