Happy New Year. Here is a quick update about the fun things that are happening at Creative Therapy this month.
Print to the Future:
Our popular printing group returns January 17. It runs every Tuesday from 6pm- 7 pm and costs $30 per session. This is an evening of handwriting and sensory exploration. It is an Occupational Therapist led drop in group designed to help improve your child’s printing, the therapist will work with the children on improving fine motor skills, gross motor skills, and posture as these are all considered building blocks to better printing.
Understanding one’s sensory processing challenges and developing strategies and tools to address these is also important to allow a child to sit still and focus. A component of this group involves time in our gym, the use of swings, and active movement to help promote improved body and sensory awareness.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details or visit creativeot.com to register for this group. This group is drop-in by nature and we ask that you let us know the Monday of the week that you wish your child to attend for planning purposes.
