Sessions are weekly and last 45 minutes. The number of sessions required will vary depending on the patient’s needs and any associated learning difficulties (Dyslexia, ADHD etc.). The sessions are tailored to the individual and a personalised rehabilitation plan is produced.
The exercises offered during the sessions are fun, varied and educational. Different techniques are employed to maintain the patient’s focus and interest. These include graphics, relaxation exercises and fine motor skills exercises.
The objective is always to relax but stabilise the grip while holding the pencil comfortably. Additional exercises will be recommended to do at home in order to aid progress.
End of rehabilitation - OBJECTIVES ACHIEVED!
By the end of the program, progress will be noticeable from the general grip of the pencil to the patient’s writing speed, regularity, fluidity and pressure. Improvement in their copy strategy to text memorisation as well as an overall improvement to their attention and concentration span!
Once these objectives are achieved, the sessions will come to an end.
