  • Fine motor skills including handwriting, tying shoes, getting dressed and organizing a school binder.
  • Executive function skills such as following multiple-step directions and finishing homework and school projects.
  • Social skills to enable your child to speak in a group, initiate conversation, make eye contact and boost confidence.
