2 Day Workshop on Handwriting Training Bandra West, Mumbai

ADAPT (formerly The Spastics Society of India)
in partnership with 
Multi-Agency International Training and Support (MAITS)
Present a
2 Day Workshop on
Handwriting Training

By Vicky Ruffle
Consultant Occupational Therapist
(BSc Hons, BAOT)


The building blocks for handwriting are often over looked and, therefore, we expect children to write before they have developed the necessary pre-requisites.  This training looks at the pre-requisites a child needs to acquire before they can consolidate handwriting skills and provides fun ideas to help a child’s development in gaining these skills before and during handwriting.  A number of approaches will be discussed include Handwriting Without Tears.  Issues relating to children’s communication skills will also be explored. 
This workshop is applicable to Occupational Therapists working with child up to the approximate age of 8 years who are continually struggling to develop this skill. 

By the end of the course you will: 
§  Be knowledgeable of the developmental stages of handwriting
§  Be able to identify and support a child who is struggling in learning handwriting.
§  Be able to design programmes with fun ideas and activities to support children to develop handwriting.
§  Be able to provide training to others (eg. parents and teachers) to support the development of children's handwriting in everyday handwriting tasks.
