Facilitating Success in Handwriting Using Sensory Motor Integration and Visual Spatial Strategies
This presentation will discuss research and practical ways to engage students using affective relationships, sensory-motor integration, and visual spatial concepts to facilitate learning of letter formation and supporting early literacy. This creative curriculum uses music, movement, and technology to enhance handwriting skills and has been effectively used with students with autism as well as students in mainstream. We will demonstrate how you can enhance motor development, sensory integration, and early literacy all while teaching students who are engaged and having fun.
