Childhood Functional Skills & Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy
I’m so excited to be participating in a year-long blog hop in 2016. Each month, I will be working with other therapists to post on different developmental topics that impact functional skills for kids. I’m so honored to be working with some amazing pediatric OTs and PTs to bring you a well-rounded blog hop that will ultimately result in 12 BOOKS!
This series will be a wonderful resource for parents, teachers, and therapists to learn about all the different activities a child performs each day. Every month, each therapist will discuss different aspects of functional skills. Each childhood function will be broken down into developmental timelines, fine motor considerations, gross motor considerations, sensory considerations, visual perceptual considerations, accommodations and modifications, activity ideas, and more.
The topics we cover will include Handwriting, Scissor Skills, Dressing, Shoe-tying, Buttons and Zippers, Playground and Community skills, Toileting, Keyboarding, School day functions, Personal Hygiene, Meal time and Play.
