Digital Learning strategies
Now that students are learning in new ways, we can work together to develop the best plan for your family to help your child succeed.
Fine motor skills training
Fine motor skills involve activities that use the coordination of muscles, bones, and nerves to produce small, precise movements. An example of a fine motor skill is picking up a small item with the index finger and thumb. Children require body awareness, motor planning skills, coordination, muscle strength, and sensation to gain these developmental skills.
Sensory Integration Training
Sensory integration is way the nervous system receives messages from the senses and turns them into appropriate motor and behavioral responses. Whether you are biting into a hamburger, riding a bicycle, or reading a book, your successful completion of the activity requires processing sensation or "sensory integration."
Emotional Regulation Training
Emotional regulation skills allow a person to self-calm during emotional and stressful situations. In children, emotional regulation issues are often seen as ‘behavior problems’. All children have tantrums from time to time, but children with emotional regulation issues often tantrum more frequently and for a longer time than their peers and become easily upset without a clear cause.
Activities of Daily Living Training
Activities of Daily Living include any tasks that a person engages in, that involves taking care of his/her own body. These can include eating, grooming, dressing, and toileting tasks.
