C has fine motor skill dyspraxia, which means he doesn’t use his hands much (apart from keeping his fingers in his ears so he doesn’t have to listen to anyone!)
C cant write or colour. He will just about tolerate hand over hand help in holding a pencil.
C doesn’t like using a keyboard even hand over hand and isn’t interested in using a touch screen.
He also prefers to stand instead of sit as he has slight Lordosis.
He’s more of a secret out of the corner of his eye observer.
But recently his class at school have started using an interactive whiteboard. And he is showing an interest! C showing an interest in anything is rare!
The board being large has meant he has been able to watch other kids using it (a screen on a PC this isn’t so possible) With a white board he can stand, the pictures are large and he can use his whole hand to drag things around, which means he gets an instant action.
The potential possibilities of this are enormous (hopefully with his communication).
It’s a pity in this respect that he has to leave school soon.
If your child’s school hasn’t got one, tell them to get one!!!
