For school-based occupational therapists, connecting assessment results, educational needs, and intervention can be a challenge. Using SCHOODLES School Fine Motor Assessment, we focus on systematically conducting a comprehensive, qualitative, criterion-based assessment of fine motor skills. In this 2-hour webinar, participants learn to clearly identify, analyze, and describe fine motor deficits related to school performance.  We explore underlying deficits that contribute to poor school performance often overlooked by school-based occupational therapists.

BONUS: Additional information for Telehealth use included!
