Making Great Marks in OT

August 02, 2017

Learning to write starts with a simple line.

And a line starts with a mark.


Many of the students at Crossroads are learning to draw lines, shapes, letters and numbers. Here two students work on such skills.

Our Occupational Therapists, Mrs. Meaghan and Ms. Carrie, are experts at helping them.

Sometimes, initially, hand-over-hand assistance is needed, and that prompting can be faded out over time until the child is able demonstrate the skill more independently.

It’s always wonderful to watch the development of a child’s skills. Our students work harder than many people, and it’s so exciting to see them make gains.
