Virtual Meeting via GoToMeeting and Aspire OT.

Topic: School Based OT: A Glimpse into Handwriting

Presenter: Abbye Webber, COTA/L

About this course: 

This course will cover information about OT in the schools, specifically addressing several aspects of handwriting. We will discuss ways to support your student during handwriting activities, activities that address different components of handwriting, and hopefully provide you with new resources that may help you grow the array of activities used to address handwriting. This presentation is not all inclusive as there are an abounding amount of ways to address handwriting in the schools that cannot be covered in an hour!

 

Course Objectives:

  1. Identify 4 components of handwriting
  2. Discuss resources and strategies to use with your students to grow their independence in the classroom.
  3. Recall 3 suggested activities that promote improved handwriting.
