IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Calling Little Scribblers in Angus!

NHS Tayside’s Occupational Therapy team is running workshops in Arbroath and Montrose to help develop pre-writing skills.

The fun packed ‘Little Scribblers’ workshops are aimed at children aged 3-5 years and will include ideas on how to develop hand and finger strength, tips on how to support pencil grasp and pre-writing ideas to try at home.

Occupational therapist Fiona Loudon said, “The Child Health Occupational Therapy team in Angus is really excited to be able to run these sessions in Arbroath and Montrose and we plan to run future workshops in other areas across the county. 

“The sessions are one hour long and have different stations for parents and their children to work at, focusing on the key skills that children need to develop their pre-writing skills. 

“We hope that parents and carers gain a better understanding of activities and games that they can do together at home that will help handwriting development.”

The workshops will take place at Links Health Centre in Montrose from 10-11am on Tuesday 20 June and Springfield Medical Centre in Arbroath from 1.30-2.30pm on Thursday 22 June.
