About this Event

This group is for children who are experiencing printing challenges (pencil grasp, legibility, decreased speed and irregular letter formation). The aim of this program is for participants to practice their printing in a fun and engaging environment. Caregivers will also learn new strategies and activities to keep their children interested in printing practice at home. The children will actively participate in gross motor and fine motor activities and will practice printing in multisensory ways. Caregivers are expected to attend the session as there is a caregiver education component and weekly homework. Each group session is one hour and a half long and the group runs for four consecutive weeks.

Eligibility Criteria:

• Children between the ages of 5 to 7

• A caregiver needs to be present for each session

• Child must be able to sit/attend to an activity for 5-10 minutes

• Child must be able to participate in group with caregiver present

• Child must be able to demonstrate some early pre-printing skills (holding pencil, imitation of pre-printing shapes: lines, circles, cross)

Dates: Wednesdays February 19th, 26th, March 4th and 11th, 2020 4:00pm-5:30pm
