Functional Skills for Kids – 12 Month Series by OTs and PTs

Functional Skills for Kids - 12 month series by OTs and PTs

During 2016, I will be participating in a series written by occupational and physical therapy bloggers on developing 12 functional skills for children. Each month we will discuss the development of one functional skill in children addressing the many components of that skill.

Parents, teachers, therapists, and others can learn about all the activities and tasks that children perform throughout the day.  Each month, we will discuss different aspects of functional skills for children including developmental time lines, fine motor considerations, gross motor considerations, sensory considerations, visual perceptual considerations, accommodations and modifications, activity ideas, and more.Functional Skills for Kids Your Therapy Source

Our first post where we dissect a function of childhood goes live on January 20th.  Be sure to stop back then so you can see all of the links related to our first topic!
