Be Proactive About Your Child’s Development & Academic Success

Awarded TOP 50 Pediatric OT Blog
When children struggle with basic skills, such as handwriting, turning in homework assignments, or regulating their behavior, they may experience stress, frustration, and embarrassment. They often become self-conscious about their inability to perform these everyday tasks, especially in comparison to their peers. As a result, they can become overwhelmed, act out, or avoid doing the work altogether. Consequently, a child’s academic performance suffers and so does their self-esteem. The long-term ramifications of this can affect every aspect of their life.

For a parent, it can be difficult to know when or how to intervene. It’s natural to be under the impression that poor penmanship isn’t serious, or that a child’s inability to control their impulses is just a phase they’re going through. However, these skills represent important developmental milestones that pave the way toward better performance and a more satisfying relationship with teachers, friends, and family.

The ability to produce legible handwriting means that a child’s work is more likely to be read. It also transforms the writing process from an onerous task into the vehicle for creative self-expression that it is meant to be.

Improved impulse control brings with it a wide variety of social and academic opportunities that are far less available to a child who is dysregulated or disinhibited.

The earlier you get your child the help they need with these fundamental skills, the easier it is to resolve. It’s never too late for your child to learn the academic and social or emotional skills they need to become a happy, healthy, and prosperous adult. So, don’t wait. Be proactive in helping your child reach their full potential. Contact Skills 4 Life today for a consultation.

Incorporating a few handwriting activities each week into your child’s routine could have a huge payoff when it comes time to return to school this fall. Get some inspiration from our list of favorites!
