Creating Confidence in Handwriting for School and Life!

SLEA OT Handwriting Success Flyer

Teacher and studentDoes your child become anxious before/during writing activities?

Does he seem to take longer to complete assignments involving writing?

Have an awkward grasp on her marker?

Are his words illegible or drawing uncontrolled?

If you are looking to supplement your child’s summer activities, our team of occupational therapists have developed a fun, multi-sensory clinic based on the well-known Handwriting Without Tears (HWT) program and other therapeutic frames of reference.  Our clinic is designed to assist children who have difficulty with pre-writing, handwriting, and other fine motor skills that affect their performance in school and beyond.

  • Learning proper pencil grip
  • Beginning stages of fine motor control

Learning to Write

  • Learn capital & lower case letters using a multi-sensory approach
  • Developing good habits for printing including sizing, formation & placement
  • Eliminating reversals
  • Perfecting pencil grip

Writing Mastery

  • Spacing letters & words
  • Developing fluent, legible writing within sentences and/or paragraphs using print or cursive
  • Improving fine motor endurance

Learning to form letters & connectors using cursive handwriting

Your child will receive an initial handwriting assessment included in our program, followed by intervention specifically tailored to his/her unique needs.

Please call (818) 788-1003 or email hwade@speechassociates.com to reserve your space or with any questions you may have.

This program is intended for Kindergarten-6th grade students and is available as private or group sessions.

Greetings From Helen

Hello to All,

March is upon us and spring break will be here soon.  Our office is very busy, with new referrals, reports, organizational discussions.  I am preparing to complete a class on Autism, which I have been teaching at CCRC to Head Start teachers.  It’s been fun!

I am also preparing for my CSHA presentation on how to encourage SLPs to assist in the speech and language component of a Functional Behavior Assessment.  Yasmin Luque, who is completing her BCBA, and is an SLP (bilingual) will be starting to perform Behavioral Assessments, which will  include SLP input and hopefully goals for implementation.  We are very proud of our staff!!!!

I am preparing a talk for Glendale Unified SLPs on developing reading and writing skills though the development of speech and language. I have also been travelling back and forth to Oakland to visit my grandkids.

The staff at the office are wonderful.  I am very proud of all they accomplish!

Wishing all of you a great month,

Helen
