Welcome to the Functional Skills for Kids series! Your Kids OT will be participating in this year-long project by top Occupational and Physical Therapist bloggers where we'll be creating blog posts based on 12 functions of childhood. From Play to Toileting and School Functions to Mealtime, this is a comprehensive compilation of posts that will become a powerful resource. Each month the OT and PT blogging team will cover everything you need to know about one of the daily functions of a child.
Have you ever wondered when your baby should begin to interact in play? Have you ever thought, "How can I help my child learn to dress themselves?" Are you looking for creative ways to work on scissor skills so your child can complete their homework? This series is for you!
The FUNCTIONAL SKILLS FOR KIDS team have worked on a year-long blog series for parents, teachers and therapists. In this series we provide information about each childhood function and have broken this down into development, fine motor considerations, gross motor considerations, sensory considerations, visual perceptual considerations, accommodations and modifications, creative ways to work on problem areas, and more.
