Description

This event is held by CYPF-North West and is intended for Occupational Therapists, assistants and students working across all paediatric settings with an interest in the Development of Handwriting


Speaker: CATHERINE ELSEY (DipCOT, HCPC Registered): Catherine qualified in Occupational Therapy in 1983 and has specialised in paediatrics since 1996. She holds a post-graduate certificate in Sensory Integration. Catherine has over 20 years’ experience of assessing and treating children with specific learning difficulties, including Developmental Co-ordination Disorder (Dyspraxia), Attention Deficit Disorder, Autistic Spectrum Disorder and Sensory Processing and Modulation difficulties. Since 2010 she has provided consultancy at a Barnardo’s school delivering an occupational therapy service for pupils with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties including developmental trauma and attachment difficulties. Catherine is a longstanding committee member of the National Handwriting Association and frequently delivers lectures, training sessions and practical demonstrations for schools and organisations highlighting the benefit of occupational therapy in the school setting.


Content: The training day will discuss in detail the complexity of handwriting as a developing functional skill for children. It will look into the underlying skills required in the development of handwriting along with difficulties children may experience and interventions/strategies occupational therapists, assistants, teaching staff and parents can utilise in supporting the development of handwriting further. There will be opportunities to be involved in practical activities and ask questions, creating interesting discussions throughout.
