Look at this simple but amazing pom pom paper plate maze by @yourkidsot! #Repost @yourkidsot with @repostapp ・・・ Paper plate pom pom maze in action (plastic plate actually).What fun we have been having making "paper plate and pom pom mazes"! So simple to set up and it appeals to all ages! We work on fine motor skills, motor planning, visual tracking, visual spatial and bilateral coordination skills to move the pom pom around through the various tunnels! This activity was inspired by @buggyandbuddy. Participating in the #pompom challenge set by @earlylearning101 this week. #earlylearning101 #earlylearning #earlychildhood #childhoodunplugged #childdevelopment #finemotorskills #bilateralcoordination #schoolot #therapyblogger #pediot #pediatricot #pediatricoccupationaltherapy #ot #otlife #ot4kids #occupationaltherapy #occupationaltherapist #eyehandcoordination #visualperception #visualmotor #yourkidsot

A great activity to work on number or letter recognition, working memory and visual processing skills especially visual discrimination and memory. Draw numbers/letters on a page. Make a key at the bottom and encourage your little one to stick the matching coloured sticker or draw a coloured circle on the matching letters/numbers. Have fun! #littlediamondsot #occupationaltherapist #occupationaltherapy #paediatrics #paedot #childdevelopment #children #otsofinstagram #letterawareness #letterrecognition #letters #numberrecognition #numbers #visualprocessing #visualmotor #matching #visualdiscrimination #visualmemory #workingmemory #learning #teaching #finemotorskilldevelopment #finemotorskills #prewriting #prewritingskills #boostingskills #makinglearningfun

Matching letters (or words or numbers)! The girls loved finding the matching letter, talking about what letter it was, and then stacking the muffin tin liners for each match in a relay style friendly competition. Just a small change or twist on an activity makes it new and fun again! Scattering the letters works on visual scanning, rotation of the letters in different directions works on visual perception skills (form consistency), and matching the letters/identification of letters works on visual discrimination skills. #pediatricoccupationaltherapy #pediatricot #learningthroughplay #play #learningletters #visualmotor #learningnumbers #rainydayplay #toddlermom

Mackenzie has been playing with this @MelissaandDoug barn for a couple of months now and it is one of my favorites. 🐷 Teaching animal sounds builds language development and early phonemic awareness skills. 🐔 Making sounds is easier for little ones than saying words when they are just learning how to speak. 🐰 This is a fun way to encourage interaction, creative play, imitation, repetition, and back and forth conversations. 🐮 The different latches on the doors work her fine motor skills. 🐴 Mac loves to put the animals inside the barn and then pull them back out, which promotes visual motor skills (necessary for eventually coloring and writing). 🐑 When I sing Old MacDonald she sways and tries to sing too! #meltsmyheart . As she gets older, I can use this for more phonemic awareness practice: find the animal in the barn that starts with the /g/ sound. Little (relaxed) moments of practice add up! . Barn is linked in profile. Happy playing! . . . . . #letthembekids #oldmacdonald #singsongs #animalsounds #farmhouseliving #finemotorskills #visualmotor #imitation #littleminds #toddleractivities #babyactivity #keepingthembusy #happykidshappymom #earlyliteracy #connectingmoms #tuesdaymorning #bookbasedplay #foundations #burtsbeesbaby #melissaanddoug #barndoor #invitationtoplay #creativeplay #imaginationiseverything #literacyforlittles_sounds

Loving this little eraser game by @kikkerland. Kids test their balance skills by placing the 13 mini erasers on the boat without letting them topple over. Great for working on improving hand-eye coordination, visual motor and perceptual skills and works on executive functioning skills such as focus, attention, motor planning and organizational skills. Best part: this set is under $5 and can be thrown right in your bag to keep kids entertained on the go. #pediatricoccupationaltherapy #bilateralcoordination #finemotorskills #makelearningfun #visualmotor #visualperception #kikkerland #executivefunction #onthego

THIS IS A FUN HANDWRITING GAME BASED ON THE GAME SPOT IT! Each pair of cards always has ONE match for students to trace. There are 31 cards (with 6 symbols on each page) in total. Students can play the traditional way by looking for the letters. However, this has a twist, students can play by TRACING the lowercase letters and numbers 1 - 5. (The letters are on primary lined paper and numbers are in boxes). All you have to do is print out the cards, (laminate-optional to use over and over) and cut. Then the pack is read to go. Check it out in my TPT store! Link in the bio! There are a few ways to use these cards. First way, the traditional way: Students turn over 2 cards and find the match. Whoever gets the match, get the cards. Second way: For only one student, the student flips over 2 cards at a time to find a match and trace the lowercase letter. The student continues to flip over two cards until all cards have been matched. Third way: Students play against each other. Two cards are flipped over at once. Whoever finds the match, gets a point and the other student has to trace the letter match. Fourth way: Students play against each other. Students race to find the match and then whoever traces the match first, gets the point. #learningdisabilities #autism #add #adhd #downsyndrome #dyspraxia #dyslexia #visiontherapy #cerebralpalsy #occupationaltherapy #OT #SPD #schoolot #SLP #sensoryprocessing #sped #spedteacher #therapyideas #specialneeds #specialeducation #finemotor #visualmotor #empoweringot #handstrength #activitiesforkids #handwriting #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofig #visualperceptual

WRITE THE ROOM.... Are you looking for an END OF THE SCHOOL PACK or SUMMER pack that addresses handwriting, visual motor skills and problem solving? This also features optional gross motor component! This pack features summer words on two separate type of pages: (1) Copy each summer word neatly. Then write each letter in the column. Unscramble the word and write the secret word below. (Pages 3-9). (2) First, cut the cards out. If you have space, spread the cards around the room for one word. Have students do an animal walk to retrieve one card at a time. You can also have students jump / walk to each word that is hung up (instead of retrieving each card). If you do not have space, cut the cards and put them out of order. Once student get the cards, have students write each word neatly and each letter. Have students unscramble the word and write the word at the bottom of the page. (Pages 10-22). #learningdisabilities #autism #add #adhd #downsyndrome #dyspraxia #dyslexia #visiontherapy #cerebralpalsy #occupationaltherapy #OT #autism #SPD #schoolot #SLP #sensoryprocessing #sped #spedteacher #therapyideas #specialneeds #specialeducation #finemotor #visualmotor #empoweringot #handstrength #activitiesforkids #handwriting #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofig

From the Journal of Behavioral Optometry.... “It is an accepted fact that the continued presence of primitive reflexes above the age of six months and the absence or under-development of postural reflexes beyond three and a half years of age are reliable indicators of neurological dysfunction, which can affect both motor and perceptual development. Research was performed on 54 students with a diagnosis of Dyslexia. Abnormal primitive and postural reflexes were found to be a universal underlying factor in this sample. The research suggests a positive relationship between abnormal reflex activity and immature postural, motor and visual functioning.” #dyslexia #visualmotor #primitivereflexes #posturalreflexes #learningdisabilities #developmentaldelay #occupationaltherapy #oculomotor #functionalneurology #neurologicaldysfunction

Long post: People often underestimate how much bilateral integration (how much right brain and left brain communicate) truly impacts our systems... ESPECIALLY the visual system. I have been working on some very specific gross motor movement with my child for about 10weeks. She showed many warning signs of decreased bilateral integration, despite being a very active and seemingly coordinated little girl. She has shown symptoms of ADHD from a very early age, disliked coloring (often wouldn’t complete coloring activities at school), had very messy coloring, and had difficulty reaching across the midline of her body in natural play.she’s also fallen and had stitches twice in her three short years. The first picture is an example of her coloring before we started, the second is 2 weeks in, and the third is approx 6weeks in. Y’all, nothing else changed except for these exercises. I see it in testing scores for visual perception and visual motor skills in my clinic all the time. She has now also had her 3yo FUNCTIONAL vision assessment by a qualified optometrist and does still need glasses for a slight eye turn hat negatively impacts her depth perception. BUT, with continuation of the exercises and wearing the glasses as prescribed, her optometrist believes all will be corrected in a few short months. So I urge you, have your child assessed by a QUALIFIED occupational therapist if you see any signs... ADHD, poor reading and/or writing skills, poor coloring skills, dislike for paper/pencil tasks, poor depth perception, difficulty learning left and right, poor emotional regulation, anxiety... I also encourage EVERYONE to have a 3yr/o and 5y/o functional vision exam, but especially if your child has any learning difficulties, including reading or writing difficulties, complains of tired eyes, rubs their eyes, constantly props his/her head while reading/writing, lays head on arm or table top, or has a hard time finding items/loses items often (to name a few signs). The importance of bilateral integration for visual skills and learning cannot be stressed enough. Let’s catch any issues before a child has to struggle any more than necessary in school!

Friday funday! One of my students really enjoyed my “finish the drawing” products. This student works on typing, so instead of writing, we typed! What a great artist! As you see, students add in their own drawings to finish the picture. After words, students write or copy (two versions) sentences about their pictures.

Using large dots for an easy-to-modify visual motor activity. The first I was using to teach start/stop, but can also work on crossing midline, visual tracking/hand-eye coordination, and color matching. The second is a more advanced visual scanning, visual motor, and visual perception version. I only have “1” for the starting dot of each to ensure a left-to-right progression (foundation for reading and writing), but gave no other numbers...giving other numbers makes it a more challenging task. Can easily modify with using single color, letters (alphabet or to spell a word). #pediatricoccupationaltherapy #pediatricot #visualmotor #readingskills #connectthedots #play #learningthroughplay #chalkboard #otmom #momtips #handeyecoordination #prewritingskills

Do your students love ALIENS and DRAWING? This is a directed drawing packet specifically for drawing 12 silly “alien” type creatures. These are all 6 step drawings. All of the shapes are easy to draw for students of all abilities. The shapes include diamond, triangle, hearts, squares and more! Each alien has 3 different pages included. One is a full page alien (pages 4-15). The second page is a half page direction to draw and half page to draw (pages 16 – 27). The third page is a half page directions, 1/2 page that includes a box to draw and a box to write (pages 28-39). This is an excellent way to work on handwriting in a fun, motivating way! This is also a great way to work on visual perceptual skills, fine motor and visual motor skills.

Some days you just need water beads! They are such a fun and relaxing sensory tactile activity. Plus, it's so easy to turn into a motivating fine motor game, just add tongs and a few larger toys like we did in this picture! 💫 This activity helps a child develop the palmer arches of the hand, as well as encourage appropriate thumb opposition, all important handwriting prerequisites.✨ Don't forget to prompt the child to stabilize the bin with their non-working hand throughout the task! This is a great way to develop those early bilateral hand skills! 💛 . . . . . . #sensoryplay #waterbeads #tactile #occupationaltherapy #creativekids #ot #slp #speechtherapy #prek #kiddos #teacher #play #iplayallday #autism #asd #wellness #playtherapy #playandlearn #school #homeschool #sensorybin #colorful #kiddos #waterplay #occupationaltherapist #playtime #finemotorskills #visualmotor #childhoodunplugged #playfullearning

Waste-not Wednesday! I go through a lot of supplies as a pediatric OT so I always make sure I’m getting the most use out of them as possible to not be wasteful! Plus a whole part of a treatment session planned with one worksheet?! I think yes! All of this was one worksheet/piece of paper 1. A simple tracing worksheet from toolstogrowot.com. This is pretty easy for most my kids, and only tracing 4 times, so I added tracing top, middle, and bottom with green, yellow, and red, which also ties in to the colors I use for 3-lined paper to teach letter sizing and alignment 2. I ALWAYS use the back! If not for the current kid I save it for the next kid like I did here. Tracing various lines 3. Cutting along the maze paths. Any tracing or cutting worksheets I always have the kids do both, and typically coloring the pictures too! #occupationaltherapy #pedsOT # finemotor #visualmotor #makelearningfun #prewriting #cutting #savetheplanet

Are you looking for a FUN and UNIQUE SUMMER and END OF THE YEAR ACTIVITY? Students make fortune tellers / cootie catchers to predict “What will you do this summer?” or “Who will you see this summer?”. Pages 4-5 are each question with the fortune teller completely filled out with words only. Pages 6-7 have pictures filled in for numbers (dots) and the center picture (ie: who will you see – mermaid, unicorn) Page 8 is a fortune teller that is blank in the center. Children color and cut out the pictures on page 9. The students then glue the pictures onto the fortune teller. This helps students to customize their fortune teller without writing. Page 10-11 has fortune tellers that have 3 lined / primary lines. This is completely blank. On the side, it includes writing prompts for answers students can fill in. Check it out in my store, link in the bio! #learningdisabilities #autism #add #adhd #downsyndrome #dyspraxia #dyslexia #visiontherapy #cerebralpalsy #occupationaltherapy #OT #autism #SPD #schoolot #SLP #sensoryprocessing #sped #spedteacher #therapyideas #specialneeds #specialeducation #finemotor #visualmotor #empoweringot #handstrength #activitiesforkids #handwriting #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofig #fortuneteller

Because some of you asked about this in my story...this is by far one of the best toys I’ve used in therapy and shared with my special educators. Pick this goody up @lakeshorelearning so many of my kiddos have asked for it in session. I’ve even had a few say they want it for their birthday 💫🙌🙏🏻. One of my kiddos that never wants to work on sight words actually asked me if we could use these to make spelling words for the week as they sounded out their words!!! I’ve been amazed at how their visual motor skills and hand manipulation skills have matured playing with these goodies. #occupationaltherapy #schoolbasedot #visualmotor #finemotorskills #letterrecognition #schoolready #specialeducation #play #sensorymotorlearning #functionaltoys #ot #cota #slp

Some modifications from yesterday’s obstacle course: 1. Play doh mat letters! More bilateral and fine motor skills. Be sure they are placing the pieces in the correct order. And don’t worry about getting all fancy, I made this on a piece of scrap paper, drew the circles, and slipped it in a dry erase pouch. By the way I’ve been using the same three pouches for months now and they’re still going strong! 2. Rainbow tracing I explained yesterday, this kiddo chose his own colors 😂 3. For my older kids we are working on words so they had to spell the word given the picture 4. Wrote the words on the chalkboard (and had to remember them while going through the obstacle course which is quite a challenge for many of my kiddos). I love having kids copy from uppercase to lowercase to work on letter memory 5. Writing in theraputty. I do this often in play doh but I tried putty as it is much harder. A great added sensory component and fine motor strength! The kids loved it! Don’t forget that practicing writing skills does not have to be pencil and paper!! Kids need to use multi sensory approaches to learn, plus it’s more fun and develops so many other important skills!! They get enough seated pencil work in school... #occupationaltherapy #pedsOT #makelearningfun #letterformation #handwriting #multisensory #bilateralcoordination #finemotor #visualmotor #homemade #playdoh

DO YOUR STUDENTS LOVE MERMAIDS? This is a fine motor pack that focuses on mermaids! Students will trace curly lines, spirals, triangles, squares and diamonds! This is a fun way for little hands to work on fine motor fun! This is INSPIRING and MOTIVATING for students who have this interest (mermaids / fish / starfish / summer). This is for working on fine motor, visual motor, visual perceptual skills and much, much more! This includes tracing / pre-handwriting lines and shapes ! Check it out, link in my bio to my store. This clipart was made by @trioriginals clipart! This is a seller I recently found who has some great bundles & high quality “cheeky” clipart!

Buttoning is a 3-4yr old skill and this is a great and fun activity to start learning with! Sew (I am not good at sewing, but this is easy) a large button onto thick ribbon....cut out shapes from felt and cut a slit in each... ta-da! Buttoning is not only important for the obvious functionality reasons, but is also a bilateral coordination task, visual perception and visual motor activity, and fine motor activity. Also a great quiet activity for car rides or waiting times 😊 #pediatricoccupationaltherapy #pediatricot #buttoning #finemotorskills #visualmotor #visualperception #bilateralcoordination #learningshapes #play #learningthroughplay

#PhotoADayChallenge Day 29 was SCISSORS ✂️— adapted scissors are used daily for this OT! Loop scissors, spring scissors, regular scissors, mounted tabletop scissors all help my kiddos be successful in cutting tasks! 📎 My kiddo here has CP and is using a paper stander ($1.00) as an adapted paper holder 📝 . Thick paper taped into place so now my student can independently stabilize the paper while using scissors to cut straight lines . #scissors #visualmotor #adaptedacissors #captureOT ✂️✂️✂️✂️✂️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

• Multisensory handwriting is a tool commonly used as an approach for handwriting for children who are just learning letter formation, children with learning disabilities and children who have difficulty with handwriting or children learning cursive. • This includes 1 page for introducing to parents (page 4), 5 pages (pages 5 – 9) of strategies including tips and directions with SOME of the explanations, to clarify. There is 1 page (page 10) that is the chart of all the ideas. • Multisensory approaches can help children to practice handwriting in a fun way. Multisensory approach taps into senses by having children practice using sensory experiences (ie: textures, movement, etc.) • Practice makes perfect and using a multisensory approach helps to make handwriting practice fun and can increase repetitions! • Multisensory handwriting approach can also help students to explicitly remember handwriting strokes by tapping into their senses. • Multisensory approaches should always be used with explicit teaching Check it out in my store, link in the bio! #learningdisabilities #autism #add #adhd #downsyndrome #dyspraxia #dyslexia #visiontherapy #cerebralpalsy #occupationaltherapy #OT #autism #SPD #schoolot #SLP #sensoryprocessing #sped #spedteacher #therapyideas #specialneeds #specialeducation #finemotor #visualmotor #empoweringot #handstrength #activitiesforkids #handwriting #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofig #multisensory

Paper Plate Butterfly 🦋- This week's therapy session craft. The kids will cut curved lines made on the backside, cut out a body, color, snip around the edges, attach body and small antennae, and apply sticker dots. Lots of scissor skill, crayon grasp and color completion work with this activity. Springtime crafting!! 🦋 #schoolot #pedsot #cotalife1 #pediatricot #schoolcota #pedscota #pediot #otlife #pediatricoccupationaltherapy #oteye #loveot #otfun #schoolbasedot #finemotorskills #visualmotor #kidscrafts #butterflycraftsforkids
