The purpose of this resource pack is to give school staff and parents ideas to support their children to practise and develop skills prior to referring to Occupational Therapy.
School staff and parents should work together and use this resource pack to help with developing an appropriate support plan as part of the Graduated Approach to Supporting Children with Special Educational Needs (SEN)- Assess, Plan, Do, Review.

This pack is intended as a guide only, and the strategies are appropriate for children with motor skills difficulties. The Occupational Therapy service should always be consulted if:
We hope that by providing advice and strategies at a universal level, a more specialised and targeted service can be provided for children who are presenting with complex difficulties.
The Occupational Therapy Service offers a Motor Skills and Self-Care Workshop which aims to help school staff better understand how to use this resource pack. School staff in schools in South and West Suffolk can self register for the workshop using their school email address – you can find more details on how to register here. Parents/carers wishing to register for the workshop parents should email email@example.com to sign up - please write ‘Motor Skills Workshop’ in the subject line.
