Summer is a good time to work on writing, school skills


Do you have concerns about your child’s handwriting? Does he or she have trouble with shoe tying, drawing and other fine motor skills?

Akron Children’s Hospital is offering a Summer Occupational Therapy Program now through August for school-age children who could benefit from weekly, individual therapy sessions.

“The school year is so busy for children and we have found summer to be a great time to address concerns that parents, teachers and physicians may have about a child’s fine motor skills,” says Mona True, director of Occupational Therapy for Akron Children’s.

The program is based on medical need so children will require a prescription from their pediatrician or primary care physician to receive an evaluation and enter the program.

For more information, call the Occupational Therapy department at 330-543-8257.
