What does a

Forest Printing Group

Session Look Like?

Each session will focus on printing development through play with gross motor movement to develop strength, endurance, and to help support the precision of fine motor control. 

A semi-structured schedule will include group activities, gross motor and fine motor activities, and individual printing practice.  

Each aspect focuses on the whole body approach to printing which is required for printing components such as grasp, legibility, and letter formation. 

Each session takes place in the forest with the use of natural elements as learning tools. Mud, water, sticks, grass, and trees will all be a part of our sessions. 

A change of clothes is recommended as kids are likely to get dirty!

Forest Printing Group for Ages 5-13

August 2 - August 25, 2022

Tuesdays & Thursdays

10:00-12:00

$400/8 session program

This 4-week group is designed for children who have already developed the foundation for printing and are able to write most capital letters but are having difficulty with legibility, spacing and progression of lowercase letters.  Supportive postures will also be addressed to help decrease body fatigue during printing. Children must be able to follow simple directions and interact well in a group setting.  Our program is run fully outdoors so children will need to come prepared for all weather.   Each session will take place within the forest therapy area at Willow Family OT.

A pre-screening phone call must be completed at least 1-week prior to the group start date. 
Upon registration, we will contact you to set this up. 
A sample of your child's writing will be requested.

Please email  if you have any questions or concerns.
