OT Corner: Keyboarding and Occupational Therapy
[Source: Your Therapy Source]
As our schools become more and more technology based with 1:1 devices, keyboarding has become an even more important skill for ALL students to master and this skill is sometimes addressed in occupational therapy. When students struggle with handwriting such as decreased legibility or slow writing speed, Occupational Therapists may recommend using computers and keyboarding. In order for keyboarding to replace handwriting skills, the students must become proficient at using the computer and typing.
