OT Recommendations for Handwriting?


My 8-year old son attends a private school in the area and after a few years of struggling with his handwriting, it has become clear that he needs outside help. Can anyone recommend a good (and hopefully reasonably-priced) OT in Oakland/Berkeley?

Hi Shannon,

Our daughter had the same problem and we took her to an OT person at Herrick.  This was years ago, but it did help some.  The therapist used an art therapy approach.

Re: cost...our insurance (Aetna at the time) paid for it.  We got a "prescription from our pediatrician.  Hope you have good insurance and you can get it covered.

Good luck,
