I am so excited to share a guest post for PediaStaff written by Sarah Girard OTR/L, an OT at Starfish Therapies.  Please take a moment to check out her post on Callirobics and how she used it with a specific child she is working with.  The program provides a novel approach to supporting kids (or adults) who have challenges with handwriting.  It takes the pressure off of forming specific letters by working on control of patterns and using music to support the learning.  If anyone has used this program we would love to hear about your experiences with it!  Click here to read her post ‘OT Corner: Callirobics For Kids – Writing Skills with Music
