Fine Motor

Not currently running! Stay tuned for upcoming sessions.


Program Description:

Ausome Ottawa is happy to partner with Algonquin College again to offer an exciting therapeutic group program to children on the spectrum. This five-week program, running on Thursday evenings, will focus on the development of fine motor skills which refer to the coordination of small muscles in hands, wrists and fingers. These small muscles help in the functioning of writing, grasping objects, and fastening clothing. Children will be paired with Algonquin Occupational Therapy Assistant students and supervised by an occupational therapist and members of the Ausome Ottawa team. This service will be delivered at no cost to you. Come and be a part of this exciting endeavour!

Important Notes:

  • Due to the nature of this program, siblings and family members cannot attend sessions.
  • Participants must be able to clearly communicate their wants and needs, be toilet trained, able to work at a table for 20 minutes, and not typically aggressive in new situations.
