Attention all Schools!
Did you know that handwriting is an extremely complex skill requiring good integration between our sensory, motor and cognitive functioning?
There are many developmental stages before a child is ready for writing and in some instances, children may not reach these expected norms for a variety of reasons.
To be able to write, a child needs to have solid foundation movement skills such as postural stability, right/left integration and motor planning which develop from efficient sensory processing. You need:
* Correct posture
* Upper limb stability
* Hand strength
* Thumb stability
* Pencil grip and control
Tree Tops can offer schools a whole class handwriting programme which can also be conducted in your bubbles! The activities are designed to aid the child’s ability to focus and get into a “ready state” of arousal and attention for writing.
