Puzzles, Parquetry, and Writing: Solutions

  1. Ensure that it is not a physical visual problem by having a through eye examination.
  2. Have your child evaluated by a professional such as an occupational therapist or psychologists or developmental optometrists to determine what
    the issues might be.
  3. If a spatial concept is missing, make sure he understands it with his body first and then in toy play and finally with paper and pencil.
  4. If your child has high verbal skills, teach him to talk himself through activities. Use his stronger language to help pull up his weakness. For example if working on
    pegboard patterns, talk your child through the first placement of the rubber band on
    the pegs: “Jimmy, place the rubber band from the top of the board to the
    bottom of the board just like in the pattern”.
  5. Encourage puzzles, parquetry block patterns, geo-boards, “Find Waldo “books, perceptual apps
  6. Make adaptations for writing, art, and math as needed.  These will be discussed in the next blogs.
