prairiewindmomma Posted January 26, 2012 Share Posted January 26, 2012 I've learned some great things over the years from working with different OTs....and so many of those things could easily be used by parents. Anyone want to share an awesome technique you learned? Here's something I learned about teaching handwriting: I learned that you can take sculpting clay and put it in a large lid (like a 32 oz yogurt lid) and have that become a space for writing with a pencil. I often trace a letter onto the clay and my ds writes over it. The resistance from the clay offers more feedback to his brain and helps improve his muscle memory. Writing on a chalkboard, in sand or in rice also offer more procioreceptor feedback than writing on paper or on a whiteboard. Drag = good.
