Sugar Aunts: Functional Skills for Kids Series by OT and PT Bloggers

Functional Skills for Kids Series by OT and PT Bloggers

Welcome to the Functional Skills for Kids series!  The Functional Skills for Kids series is a year-long project by top Occupational and Physical Therapist bloggers where we'll be creating blog posts based on 12 functions of childhood.  From Play to Toileting and School Functions to Mealtime, this is a comprehensive compilation of posts that will become a powerful resource. Each month the OT and PT blogging team will cover everything you need to know about one of the daily functions of a child.  

A 12 month series on the Functional Skills of kids, including play, handwriting, school day functions, community, dressing, hygiene, toileting, self-care, and more. By Occupational and Physical Therapists and loaded with tips and ideas for parents, teachers, and therapists who work with kids.


Childhood Functional Skills & Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy

Have you ever wondered when your baby should begin to interact in play?  Have you ever thought, "How can I help my child learn to dress themselves?" Are you looking for creative ways to work on scissor skills so your child can complete their homework?  This series is for you!

This year-long series is for parents, teachers, therapists, and anyone who is looking for information about all the tasks a child routinely completes.  You'll see each childhood function broken down into development, fine motor considerations, gross motor considerations, sensory considerations, visual perceptual considerations, accommodations and modifications, creative ways to work on problem areas, and more. 

Meet the Occupational Therapists and Physical Therapists on the Functional Skills for Kids Team:
(Follow each therapist on social media for developmental information, great ideas, and creative community!)
