Scribbles! Occupational Therapy & Enrichment Camp enables Rebecca to combine her creativity, genuine compassion and enjoyment towards all children and their families, and interest in helping the ”whole” child improve their“occupations” at home and school with their family and friends. Rebecca’s special interest in all stages of handwriting and helping a child access their academic curriculum demonstrates her understanding and appreciation of caring for the whole child.
The process in achieving handwriting skills include early intervention, fine motor play, sensory integration, ergonomics, and the environment.
Rebecca’s interest and understanding of the handwriting components can be seen in an article she authored, Handwriting 101, WASHINGTON PARENT, April 2003.
