New OT Goal

January 10, 2012

For the past several months Owen’s OT at school has been working on eating with utensils. Owen has made a lot of progress in this area. He still needs assistance, but has improved greatly. So, I emailed the OT and told her if she preferred for me to focus on utensils at home so they could work on something different I was totally on board.

She called me later that day to discuss it. She had a great idea of a new goal… keyboarding skills.

Owen is no where even close to holding a pen or pencil. You can barely get him to attempt to scribble on paper. So, chances are he will be using some electronic alternative when it comes to learning to “write” or spell for at least the next several years.

I thought this was a great idea. It really makes sense. I’m really curious to see how it goes and how he takes to it. 🙂
