Kids OT Calgary – Revised February

Kids OT Calgary understands that for some children, printing practice only leads to frustration, not perfection. The goal of my printing program is to emphasize success for each child in order to build a sense of confidence when writing. Emphasis is placed on the component skills required for proficient writing, including pencil grasp, fine motor skills, visual motor skills, spatial skills, and motor planning. Kids OT Calgary uses a multi-sensory approach and activities that are both fun and rewarding.

KIDS OT CALGARY is offering groups at PBP Community Center!

Tools for Little Hands

  • Builds fine motor-hand skills for preschool aged children
  • Fun and creative activities that focus on using both hands to increase bilateral hand skills and crossing the midline
  • Kids will sing, colour, cut, count, and draw in a developmentally appropriate way

Tools to Print

  • Teaches kids to learn to form letters and numbers using the correct motor plan
  • Hands-on activities and multisensory teaching strategies that build good handwriting habits early
  • Offered in 3 groups : Introduction to Uppercase Letters, All Uppercase Letters, and Lowercase Letters

Tools for Cursive Writing

  • Cursive writing often helps kids write faster and more legibly
  • This program teaches cursive writing using the kinesthetic “Loops and Other Groups” program developed by Mary Benbow, Occupational Therapist

Tools to Legibility 

  • This program makes the transition from learning how to print single letters to copying words and sentences while maintaining proper letter formation, line control and spacing between words. Areas of focus include letter formation, visual-motor skills, visual perceptual skills and fine motor skills.
