Question-and-Answer Session with an Occupational Therapist, 6th June

"I really wish I could talk to an OT about my child"
"I want to show an OT my child's exercise book"
"I think my child's writing is alright but he grips his pencil in a strange way. Should it be corrected?"

Many parents would like to sit down with an occupational therapist and get advice about their children's handwriting difficulties. This is your chance!

This is a two-hour, small-group consult session with Ms Teo Lee Fun, OT, for parents of children with handwriting difficulties.

- Examples of their child's handwriting
- Their child's pencils
- Photos or short video clips for feedback about pencil grip or posture.
