    Have you noticed your child having trouble with reading or handwriting? Do they seem to lack coordination with fine motor tasks like tying their shoes or big motor tasks like catching a ball? Even if your child does not need glasses, sometimes they need help building the visual skills needed to perform many of the tasks required of them in school. This enrichment course is led by a trained Occupational Therapist that works with school aged kids professionally and has had training on building the visual skills needed to perform better in all areas of life. Your child will participate in fun, visually stimulating games and multi-sensory tasks to help improve their letter and shape recognition, handwriting, fine motor dexterity, overall hand-eye coordination and attention. *This class is not meant as a substitute for one-on-one Occupational Therapy.
