Welcome to OT Month!

April has fast come upon us. Many OT practioners are enjoying themselves in sunny NOLA. Enjoy AOTA Conference! Meanwhile, I am sitting at home hiding under my blanket trying to keep warm on this dreary Friday.

Anyway, have you ever hear of Macaroni Kid? I met with the local franchise owner, Jen Schorr, a few weeks ago. She has invited me to share periodic blog posts. Here is my first article

How does this description compare to ones that you have heard in the past? Are the descriptions of dyslexia and dysgraphia similar or different.

Please share in the comments.

Have you found my explanation of dysgraphia helpful?

Consider having me come to your place of school/business to do a workshop. I will come to most of the counties in Eastern PA. I can come over lunch and hang out with you in the faculty room while you enjoy lunch.

If you live farther than an easy drive, email me so that we can talk about an all day workshop or a remote luncheon.

Here is an OT Month Challenge from another OT.

How many have you entered on your Facebook or Instagram page?

Here is my OT MONTH challenge…

Since is OT month, I challenge you to post a comment and share one April activity that you are doing with your students this month.

ALL ENTRIES are going into a randomized pool for a chance to win Cheri’s three-credit course that coincides with her book. More details on the course are located Handwriting Brain Body DisConnect: The Course.

I know you can find many ideas on Pinterest. If you share here, I will do a task analysis for each activity posted. These quick shares and analyses may help others understand why OTs do what we do.

Teachers and parents, your shares are especially important. There may be details of an activity and how it helps handwriting legibility and speed that you may not have thought about before.

Linking the activity with handwriting will only help you understand more about this topic and the disabilitiy that may go alongside your daily routine.

GO AHEAD and SHARE your activities.

Keep #writingitbyhand,


P. S. I know this is a little last minute, but..
