Welcome to Mrs. Sturgis's OT Page

Occupational Therapy (OT) is a related service that helps students in special education achieve functional use of fine motor, visual motor, visual perceptual, and self-help skills, specifically relating to their educational needs. The OT staff is committed to working collaboratively with teachers, students, parents, and other IEP team members to develop strategies and adaptations/modifications that will help students achieve.


Click on the Files and Documents tab to find a variety of activities you can do with your child to work on fine motor skills. 

Please know that you can always reach out to me by email and I will respond as soon as possible; however, I wanted to let you know that I am now offering “office hours” during the week as well. On Mondays and Wednesdays from 11-12 I will be by my computer and will be able to give you a prompt reply. Virtual meetings and/or phone calls can also be arranged to occur during these times as well.

SPANISH VERSION of OT activity files  have been uploaded to files/documents    

*****In the Files/Documents link, you will find three sets of OT activities that address visual motor, fine motor, sensory motor and activities of daily living skills. I will add new activities each week during the school closures. When selecting activities, please consider your child's skill level. The lists vary based on skill levels. 

*******I have added a modified shoe tying technique video to help simplify the process.

*******Easy DIY moon sand/ kinetic sand recipe was added in the Sensory file 

Writing Tips 
I have added some helpful reminders with regards to letter sizing, spacing and placement in the Documents/Files tab. 

Although PWCS is unable to provide instruction or class assignments to students while schools remain closed, our School Division hopes that the suggestions for optional learning activities posted here will help parents support student learning until schools re-open. Please remember that use of these materials and participation in these activities are optional and neither grades nor course credit will be awarded.
