Sometimes, practice is the best option for improving skills.
The following skills are most commonly included in a Performance Program with the aim of supporting error-less learning and practice of specific goals.
Your Performance Program will be designed following a discussion about your goals and an assessment of current skills. Once these have been reviewed by your Occupational Therapist, they will provide ongoing support and resources to help you master the performance level you imagine.
S-PaCE Goal Setting is an important part of any Performance Program and will support reaching successful outcomes
Does your child:
Find ways to avoid sitting down when it’s time to do homework?
Have difficulty producing legible handwriting?
Seem to take longer than usual in completing home and class assignments?
How We Can Support Your Child
Doing homework can be tricky when your child is reluctant to pick up the pencil. Early Links Occupational Therapists will help breakdown the processes needed for handwriting. Our therapists will assess the skills your child needs to sit at the table, hold the pencil and maintain attention.
Sessions for Handwriting will include:
Activities to improve postural control and major muscle groups needed to stay seated at the table
Strategies to improve focus and concentration by teaching your child how to recognise their alertness
- Direct practice to improve handwriting speed and legibility
