Our individual and caring approach delivers the best outcomes for each child. Current research (A Systematic Review of Interventions to Improve Handwriting: Hoy, Egan, Feder: Canadian Journal of OccupationalTherapy February 2011) is indicating that for ‘handwriting therapy to be effective intervention you must allow for handwriting practice at a minimum twice per week for a total of at least 20 minutes’.
Therefore, your child’s therapy program will include home program activities each week.
Therapy session using a sensory integrative approach requires a ‘skilled therapist and a large room with a lot of simple yet specialised equipment. When a therapist is doing her job effectively and the child is organising their nervous system, it looks as if the child is merely playing. This is one of life’s paradoxes’
