Sarah is a licensed and board certified occupational therapist. Since graduating from Saint Ambrose University she has worked with children in outpatient clinics and schools. Sarah is one of our therapists in both the school and our clinic. Since Sarah works in the schools, I started the conversation asking her perspective on what therapy looks like in a school setting and what techniques she uses in that environment.
In this episode:
- Identifying what part of the fine motor skills needs to be strengthened.
- Why posture is so important and can affect how they write and cut.
- Even as they get older, still making sure there is “tummy time” to help them build their core.
- How does autism work in conjunction with fine motor skills.
