What we do

First of all we establish what skills your child needs to gain or improve. These skills are evaluated / discussed as well as components of development that typically underpin these skills such as underlying postural, coordination and balance abilities. Muscle tone and muscle strength, flexibility of joints and length of key muscle groups are evaluated. This provides us with a comprehensive overview of your child's postural and motor systems. A treatment plan is created to plot the steps needed to get from where your child is now to where they need / want to be.

 

Treatment may involve a number of approaches. For example an exercise programme which links adaptive responses in the feet to improving strength of core muscles will be taught alongside a motor skills training programme plus advice about desk and chair height / footwear / orthotics.

 

With handwriting we work to improve writing posture and pencil grip and integrate this with training pencil technique i.e. the postural and motor foundations of writing. We then revise / teach letter formation and joins and progress this to writing words and sentences.
