Does you child have difficulties with;
-Keeping up with their handwriting in class?
-Pain when handwriting?
-Unclear hand dominance when handwriting?
-Do they struggle to maintain attention and sit still in lessons?
We understand that these difficulties can cause a lot of tears for children and stress on their families. Butterflies Children's Occupational Therapy Leeds can help by completing a home and / or school visit assessment of handwriting skills. This will include assessment using the DASH standardised assessment and non standardised assessments to assess skills and the environment to ascertain what may be having an affect on handwriting skills and development.
From here a written report, 1:1 intervention / specialist occupational therapy programme can be completed upon request to support the child to build on their skills.
We like smiling faces and are here to help children meet their full potential.
Does your child have difficulties with their handwriting?
Would they benefit from learning in a group setting, learning to develop their skills alongside children with similar difficulties.
Butterflies Children's Occupational Therapy Leeds is able to complete group work in school / or at home to support children with handwriting difficulties. Group work would involve developing gross and fine motor skills as well as exploring seating position to support children to develop their handwriting.
Group work would be facilitated by 1 staff member from Butterflies Children's Occupational Therapy (in school - with or without teaching assistants depending on their capacity) with a minimum of 4 and maximum of 6 students. (this is open to discussion).
Due to financial constraints on schools budget it is advised that these groups are funded by families. However, group intervention of this nature would be at a cost significantly less that 1:1 intervention.
We are based within and around Leeds and Yorkshire
