Tiffany's Thursday Tip

Knots, not just for scouts
After your child masters tying shoelaces, I like to introduce tying other types of knots using different types of rope. This activity is appropriate for older children, typically 9-10 years old. In addition to helping your child earn those ever-coveted scout badges, continued work on tying knots improves visual perception, hand strength and fine motor skills.

The Internet has an abundance of instructional knot sites…Check out here and here. Or if you prefer a book, I like this one.

Tiffany's Thursday Tip

Board games are a great way to cure boredom and engage your child. Games are a great way to help develop social skills, improve attention span and practice taking turns.  One of my favorites is Operation. This game has the added bonus of helping your child work on his/her fine motor skills.

Tiffany's Thursday Tip

While spring does not appear to be anywhere in sight on a day like today, trust me, it’s coming. I’ve been encouraging my clients’ parents to break out the spring gym shoes and dress shoes with laces now so when those warmer days finally get here, their kids will be experts at tying their shoes. One of my favorite products to help with shoe tying is the I Can Tie Shoelaces. Check out their how-to video:

I'm Back!

Now that the kids are back in the swing of things at school it’s probably a good time to reevaluate some of the skills they will need for success. With the implementation of the common core standards, not much emphasis is placed on teaching handwriting in the classroom. However, recent research supports the idea that the process of learning handwriting creates pathways in the brain that help with overall learning.

The good news is that I am available to help your child hone those fine motor skills and improve their penmanship. Write Now Handwriting and Therapeutic Services utilizes the Handwriting Without Tears program to help your child learn to write with ease and confidence. I also provide pediatric occupational therapy servicesI’m also available for small group after school sessions, camps and on-site school consultations.
