Help Us Get a Grip

My Students

I work with amazing students who have special needs to be successful within their classroom. All student that I work with have individualized education plans and have an educational disability such as autism, intellectual disability, orthopedic impairment or a health impairment that impacts their ability to learn.

As an occupational therapist I work with the students in grades K-12 who may have trouble with scissors because of poor motor coordination, they can't properly hold a pencil because of weak hand strength, they may have weak visual motor skills which impacts their ability to write or draw, or they might not know how to zip their coat to go to recess.

They are all amazing students who have a desire to learn.

My Project

There are lots of ways to help a child build hand strength, some fun and some not so fun. With these new tweezer activities from Lakeshore learning, my students will be able to develop their much needed hand and pinch strength in fun and engaging ways so that they are better able to do activities like grip a pencil to write or crayons to color.

The activities also work on much needed skills such as waiting to take a turn, counting numbers, color matching, patterns and more.

For example, The Scoop and Count Ice Cream Shop would not only allow the students to work on finger and hand strength, but creating patterns and following directions as well. Please consider funding this project to help my students grow! Thank you!
