My Students

As an occupational therapist, the children that I work with are typically sensory seeking, have poor attention, strength, and have developmental delays. They require a break down of subjects and materials that are developmentally appropriate. Often in order to maintain attention to academics, engaging materials are a must. Breaks and adaptations allow them to refocus and stimulate their brain in another way, while allowing them to learn and achieve independence, strength, coordination and fine motor skills in order to be successful learners.

Special needs children required adaptive toys and materials for learning and for play, and all children benefit from a sensory motor approach.

You will be providing opportunities for the children to play like all children do. So often activities and breaks for these projects are supported by related service providers like myself.

My Project

Using technology to improve visual motor, and problem solving skills is just one way that these tools will be used. They promote so much more, and are highly engaging for students with difficulty attending to tasks. The Osmo kits that I have requested promote fine motor skills, visual motor, and visual perceptual skills, as well as visual tracking, and attention which are all needed for academic achievement. All while learning math, science, literacy, and technology. It is a great STEM tool that can be adapted to my students needs.

The iPad is a gateway for the osmo kit to work appropriately, and also iPad applications that will be added to promote various other learning, and motor skill achievements in children who have difficulties with this process.
