If summer vacation means that your child has the summer off from Occupational Therapy (or if you just think he/she could use a little work-out for those growing muscles), here are some of my favorite ways to improve grasp and hand strength. Improved hand strength can translate to improved handwriting, better endurance while writing and cutting, and better fine motor and self-care skills.
The beginning of the school year is an ideal time to consider a neuropsychological evaluation for your child if he/she is struggling. Given this, Dr. Whitman is currently offering a Fall 2011 Special: 25% off evaluation fees. Please contact her directly for further information. Dr. Whitman offers free consultation by phone or e-mail.
