Handwriting is a foundational educational skill for children. This includes the great majority of kids with special needs. It can be challenging to identify how to meet their needs best and get them to write with ease and automaticity. Building handwriting skills in kids with ASD, ADHD, and low muscle tone isn’t easier just because they have the most common diagnoses. It gets even more complicated for kids with rare disorders.
Optimize your interventions with practical strategies you can apply immediately. Spot the subtle issues that are slowing down progress. Enhance a child’s classroom performance with ideas that help children thrive!
Here are some of the ways to use this Special Needs Handwriting Handout pack in your clinical practice:
- Assemble a take-home packet after team meetings or clinical supervision sessions.
- Optimize treatment carryover by underlining important issues to address and specific techniques to try in the classroom or at home.
- Professional handouts demonstrate your knowledge base in a team meeting, facility in-service, or PTA presentation.
- Add these handouts to your department orientation for student therapists, new grads, or therapists transitioning from another specialty into pediatrics.
