  • $192 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

As an occupational therapist in a rural low-income school district, funds are limited. Therefore, we are unable to obtain the supplies needed for working with children with severe needs, primarily in the life-skills area.

I work often with children for sensory, life skills, fine motor, gross motor and body regulation.

We are often in need of large and small sensory items in order to help our students reach their goals.

Our students are amazing and we want to give them every opportunity that typical children have.

My Project

These items will help my students develop their fine motor skills in order to participate more fully in the classroom environment.

By having fun, exciting games and activities, my students will engage in the fine motor tasks that they need to strengthen their tiny intrinsic muscles in their hands that enable them to write.

The games and activities, such as building fine motor skills game, dot and learn markers, and little hands fine motor tools, will help allow my students to enjoy writing and will help to decrease frustration they may feel due to the lack of strength they have in their hands.
