As a school-based occupational therapist, I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to work with many autistic children over the years. I soon discovered the value in being able to think outside the box and quick on my feet. This was often necessary to keep my autistic kiddos engaged and motivated to do what I needed them to do during therapy sessions. It is with great enthusiasm that I share an article that I’ve written for the outstanding publication Autism Parenting Magazine. In the May 2021 issue, I share strategies that parents can use to prepare their children for the handwriting demands of kindergarten and beyond. These strategies are also recommended for teachers, those who homeschool, or anyone who provides care for children with autism. I hope you find this information useful!
