Analyzing Activities for Improving Student Hand Function
Overview: The most important tools that students bring to school are their hands. Hands allow students to manipulate their environment to provide specific opportunities to learn. The skills of the hand must be developed. This workshop will focus on the components of hand function and how they influence the activities you choose for treating your students. We will also discuss how you can expand student skill development into the classroom and home.
Learning Objectives: Participants will be able to:
Identify neuromotor and hand development components of activities for treatment;
Discuss the use of activity analysis and clinical observation to expand your treatment activities;
Develop strategies to push carryover of fine motor skills into the classroom.
