Welcome to a spot to share ideas for working with students in exceptional education in public schools.
Please describe activities you've successfully used with students to improve fine motor and self-help skills.
Creative classroom adaptations for sensory-based and ergonomic needs are sought. Technology applications, low and high tech, are appreciated.
Above all--be positive and professional in sharing your experiences and ideas. Thanks.

This student and I took turns writing our last names and some recent vocabulary words. After each word was written and cut away from the original sheet of lined paper we slipped the twin words into the tiny sentence strip holders I bought at Target this August. Thank you, Mrs. Leila Harris, for introducing me to these miniature sentence strips!
It was a lot more interesting for the student to get up out of her chair and walk over to the whiteboard with each word as it was finished, rather than waiting for all the words to be completed.
