Hello there OT practitioners! Calling all interested OTs/OTAs/ students in OT/OTA programs and OT professors/instructors to join a great Facebook group that is growing astronomically every day (over 1,000 members). I am a co-administrator and it is a great place to share your favorite apps or ask questions of your peers. As it is an international group we are asking folks to identify if US and to add hashtags for searching purposes such as #peds #adults #handwriting #visualperceptual, etc. Thanks and share the word!
Update February 2018: This Handwriting/Writing AT Survey is Still Active: Calling all OT, AT, special educators and other professionals working with children and adults with writing limitations:
Could you please take and share a quick 10 question (multiple choice) survey for an upcoming presentation I’m performing regarding the use of handwriting/writing assistive technology supports? It’d be greatly appreciated.
