Teaching handwriting or handwriting remediation can be both one of the most rewarding and frustrating areas for occupational therapists. Most approaches tend to emphasize workbook-based rote skills, rather than any truly conceptual applications. Tiny Tots Therapy, Inc will be hosting Dr. Beverly Moskowitz, DOT, MS OTR/L, FAOTA, the author of Practical Strategies for Increasing the Effectiveness, Efficiency and Impact of your School-Based Occupational Therapy Practice, for a two-day workshop and SMHP certification course February 19-20 at the Renaissance Hotel in Woodbridge, NJ.
One of the many reasons Dr. Moskowitz is so highly sought and respected is that her method doesn’t rely on anecdotal or folk evidence, but rather on concrete statistics and data. The Size Matters Handwriting Program (SMHP) is not only suitable for professional therapists in clinical settings, but can be utilized by teachers in an inclusive classroom setting, in a remedial context, and even reinforced in the home. Dr. Moskowitz’s program is in use in every state, and outside of the US as well.
During the two-day workshop, Dr. Moskowitz will be offering the SMHP certification program for educators or professionals with a minimum of a two-year degree in an education or healthcare related field. A recommendation letter is also required for entry to the 2-day certification program.
Topics covered will include:
– Handwriting research
– SMHP success data
– 8 key concepts of SMHP
– Implementation strategies in different educational settings
– Lesson plans and data collection
– Treatment planning
– Varying accommodations
– Employing SMHP in classroom games
Tiny Tots Therapy, Inc hosts this and other programs throughout the year to further our primary goal of providing evidence-based services to assist every child’s learning. We emphasize a whole-child approach that includes traditional, holistic, alternative, and advanced treatment modalities combining sensory-motor integration and ABA methodology.

Physical therapy (PT) has become an increasingly popular intervention for individuals with disabilities impacting motor function. For children, physical limitations can result from injuries and accidents, as well as from developmental delays and other conditions. As PT has become a more widely used treatment in recent years, there have been a number of advances in the delivery of PT interventions. Here are some of the ways PT has become better than ever before in improving patient outcomes.
Making it fun. From videogames to sensory gyms, physical therapists are now able to engage their patients in exciting and enjoyable ways. By making PT fun and stimulating, patients are more motivated to complete their prescribed routines. This is especially important for getting children excited about their therapy.
Getting app savvy. Smartphone apps make it easy for patients to keep track of their protocols and log their progress. In addition, many PT apps offer video glossaries to help patients remember how a particular exercise should be done.
Harnessing new inventions. The field of PT has benefited greatly from innovative equipment and technologies. Some recent inventions that are benefiting PT patient care are the Nintendo Wii Fit, which can be used for balance and strengthening exercises, as well as occupational and neurological rehabilitation, and the Ekso Suit, made of aluminum and titanium, that can train patients with partial paralysis to increase mobility.
These and other advances in physical therapy are allowing patients to heal at rates and levels never before seen. Physical therapy practitioners and patients should stay abreast of new inventions that can benefit their care.
