OT Telehealth Handwriting Clinic
Children of the pandemic are behind in many facets of their education, including the basic skills of handwriting. Without direct contact from teachers in a classroom setting, many young children ages four to six have been without instruction on proper handwriting techniques.
To help these children overcome this lack of direct classroom instruction, the Misericordia University Occupational Therapy program developed an online handwriting clinic, held during the summer of 2020 to help students catch up before the new school year began.
Several Misericordia occupational therapy graduates attended the first inaugural COTEC-ENOTHE conference at the Northern University of Ireland in Galway, Ireland June 15-19, 2016.The focus of the conference was to establish a connection between clinical practice, research, policy and education. Misericordia alumnae presented their masters research projects to over 1,000 OTs from 45 different countries.
