Hello! Welcome! My name is Sumaiyah Mahmood and I am an occupational therapist at Howe and William Ford. I will be sharing resources and links about skills we address in occupational therapy and how to address them at home. The students have been working at school to build on their skills and it is important to maintain and grow those skills at home. One of the best ways to build fine motor, visual motor/perceptual, cognitive, sensory processing, and self care skills is for the child to participate in and practice everyday activities. Activities such as helping with cooking, putting their clothes on, feeding themselves, interacting with toys and games, making art/craft projects, and helping with chores (laundry, sweeping, making their bed, and cleaning up their belongings). If you have any questions please email me at Mahmoos@dearbornschools.org.
