The Kiki’s Children’s Clinic Occupational Therapists offer handwriting groups
Group sessions are suitable for any child who needs help to improve:
- Pencil grip
- Letter formation
- Letter and word sizing
- Letter and word spacing
- Writing speed
- Progression from print to cursive (joined up) writing
- Progression from pencil to pen use.
Groups motivate and boost writing confidence. Group sessions offer an affordable yet highly effective therapy environment. A questionnaire needs to be completed to determine which group a child should join. The small group therapy techniques aim to develop and enhance fine motor skills.
With guidance from the Occupational Therapist, children support and motivate each other with praise, understanding and encouragement to reach individual goals.
