Private Lessons

SCHOOL READY, WRITING AND ART
When:
September 1 - September 29
Ages: 4-7
Cost: $320 for 4 Lessons

School Ready, Writing and Art, a private lesson, will be a 1:1 session with the student, parent, and registered occupational therapist. The occupational therapist will use "The Screener of Handwriting Proficiency," an informal screen from the Learning Without Tears Program to gather insightful data about the student's handwriting skills and areas that need remediation. Personalized learning strategies to work on the student's targeted area of need will be provided. Art projects, visuals, multi-sensory strategies, movement, and music will be used to keep the sessions fun and engaging. Foundational skills like eye-hand coordination, bilateral integration, hand, and finger strengthening for proper pencil grasp will be also addressed. In addition, social interaction, organization, and strategies to gain most out of a virtual learning environment will be taught as well. Parent education on how to help your child is also a key component of the private 1:1 lessons.
