I'm pleased to inform you that I'm hosting a handwriting summer camp this year in the Hyde Park Area. This camp will be packed with fun, games, and handwriting in both PRINT and CURSIVE.  The camp size will be small. To ensure a spot, please reply to this email and I will forward you information regarding the deposit. Looking forward to working with your child and helping them achieve confidence and ease when writing.

Kids are back in action after a long winter break, so that means we are back to practicing our handwriting! Pencil pressure is a common concern with children who struggle with handwriting. I have created a list of some ways that you can help your child either increase or decrease their pencil pressure when they are working on their handwriting at home! 

If your child’s handwriting is too light it may cause difficulty with letter size and placement. 
  • Practice shading coloring pictures with deep pressure, just right, and light pressure 
  • Use a golf tee and write letters or words in clay
  • Put writing paper over rough sandpaper for the tactile response 
  • Using graph paper to make designs (squares, X,/,\)


If your child’s pencil pressure is too hard it may cause fatigue which could lead to careless handwriting:
  • Writing on carbon paper- child has to write lightly so the pencil hardly goes through
  • Warm up with squeezing a stress ball or wheelbarrow walks to give input to the child’s hands before starting
  • Wrap clay around the pencil and if the kid makes a dent in the clay they are applying too much pressure
  • Use mechanical pencil- try not to break the tip
  • Provide an example of Pencil Pressure, too light, just right, too hard

It's always a JOY to watch a child soar after receiving occupational therapy services. Alex's amazing growth proves with consistent therapy exponential growth is possible. The email below was written by a Alex's mother. Alex is a 8-years old boy with mild autism and ADHD.  Prior to therapy, his visual motor skills were below average and his motor  coordination skills are very low. After 9 months of therapy, he improved with both his visual motor and motor coordination to within average range.

Hi Tiffany! 

I know most of the time you interface with Alex's dad, but I just wanted to take the time to thank you, so much, for the amazing progress you have helped Alex make on his handwriting. He has literally caught up 4 years in 9 months! His self-confidence and grades at school and educational future have been so enhanced by your work, I just can't thank you enough.


Again, thank you SO much for everything.  

All best, 
Nicole M.
