What we do
First of all we establish what skills your child needs to gain or get better at. These skills are observed / discussed and usually we assess 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 motor systems. A treatment plan is created to work out 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 work to develop adaptive balance responses in the feet with improving strength of core muscles alongside a motor skills training programme plus advice about desk and chair height / footwear / orthotics.
With handwriting we work to improve writing posture and support correct pencil grip and train technique of executing pencil movements i.e. the postural and motor foundations of writing. We then integrate this with teaching letter formation and joins.
