Occupational Health Here is a link to the Occupational Heath team's website, which also provides a wealth of information for parents and professionals
Bucks Occupational Therapy On the Bucks Occupational Therapy page are links to the Primary Resource pack, which contains a wealth of ideas for helping develop children's gross and fine motor skills:
Touch Typing There are a number of Touch Typing programs around, including the BBC Dance Mat program; however, several of our children in school regularly use www.typingclub.com , which they could continue to use and access at home.
Dough DiscoThere are many exercises on the Bucks OT website for warming up fingers and fine motor muscles. Pre Covid-19, the children at the Akeley site were very used to accessing Dough Disco on YouTube; they love joining in with the energetic lady to warm up their hands before any activities in class - evidence shows that warming up these fine motor muscles helps everyone sustain writing for up to 20 minutes longer - just like we would warm up before a football match.
