Geared towards students between the ages of 6 and 11, “Getting It Write” is a six-week handwriting program designed for children experiencing difficulties with the skill of handwriting. This program was developed by, and is taught by Occupational Therapists. Each week focuses on a different skill that precedes the development of handwriting. A multi-sensory approach is emphasized, including general body coordination, tactile and kinesthetic awareness, visual spatial perception, hand manipulation skill, strength and motor planning.
Clinics are conveniently offered in three locations: Coopersville, Wayland, and Cedar Springs. Assessments begin the week of June 4 and classes begin June 11 and July 23.
Summer is a great time to work on writing skills, in preparation for the upcoming school year. The assessment and six week class is $120. For registration or questions, call 616.997.6172, click here, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
