OT.jpgOccupational Therapy Learning Activities
Tracey’s website was to inspire parents to help their children develop the skills they need for formal schooling. So many “foundations” need to be in place before children are ready to read and write, and the activities on my website can help get those foundation skills in place.

Most of the activities are easy to do at home and most of them don’t use fancy equipment or resources.
