Session Data
Subjective Data (Home Progress/Comments):
O and mother arrived for OT today. O seemed a little reticent at first, but warmed up as we
discussed the activities planned for the day. A visual schedule was used to introduce him to
the plans for the session. O demonstrated overall good attention to the activities today, even
when one activity was combined with another student. He was able to focus and finish the
activity. O enjoyed the Star Wars theme of the activities and seems more willing to
participate when theme is used. Caution should be used though due to the need to refocus his
attention a few times due to his desire to discuss Star Wars.

Accompanied by: Mother, Mother accompanied us to the area that the activities were
taking place.

Intervention Description

Objective Performance Data

Warm up: (5 Minutes)

Sensory Motor Activity:
Swung on platform swing using Halloween vampire
teeth (Wookie teeth) to pop bubbles that are blown
toward him focusing on vestibular and
proprioceptive input to improve organization skills
and focus on session.

Activity 1: (15 Minutes)

FM Handwriting
O used tracing sheets to trace numbers 1-10 as
well as the names on the star wars themed
worksheet. This was done to improve his bilateral
hand coordination while holding the paper, his
manual dexterity, fine motor precision, and
hand/eye coordination while writing,

O required 4 physical prompts while forming

the number 1 to use proper directionality
through his fine motor precision, and
hand/eye coordination.
O required 4-5 VP on using correct
directionality when drawing his magic c letter
O requires 1-2 VP in his bilateral hand
coordination of holding the paper while
O required 3 VP and Modeling of proper
formation of letter 8.

O was able to independently swing while

sitting and popping bubbles.
Fine motor control was used while moving
Wookie teeth to prepare him for writing
activities next.

Activity 3: (15 Minutes)

Began a cutting activity. O was required to first plan
out the different shapes that would be required for
the entire project off of an image provided. He then
drew a rectangle, and a circle in preparation for
cutting. At this point time was over for activity.

O required 3-4 VP to return attention back to

making the list for the items needed.
O required modeling and modA in drawing his
rectangle, but was independent in drawing
the circle.

Cool Down: (5 minutes)

Cool down consisted of yoga poses disguised with
star wars terms. Airplane (x-wing fighter) was used.
He then was asked to remember one pose from a
previous day.

O required modeling to perform the poses.

This activity is used to give large amounts of

proprioceptive input designed to reorganize the
system and prepare to transition from clinic to
Home Program: No homework was given at the end of the session, but there was a discussion during
session of possibly meeting during the week of 12/13-12/19, which I am up for.

Assessment: (Analysis of data Does data show progress, maintenance or decline? What contributed/interfered
w/performance? Effectiveness of cues, grading of activities, assist, etc. How did affect, focus, health, etc. impact performance?
What does todays performance suggest for next session? What was discussed w/parents?) O is continuing to make

progress in the legibility of the alphabet. His legibility is still around 60-65%. After missing a week of
interventions (due to Thanksgiving) he regressed on his proper letter formation, going back to forming his
magic c letters using a clockwise formation rather then counterclockwise. O required less prompts to
refocus attention on tasks, and had less times that he lost focus on the task at hand. According to what
happened this session, next session we will refocus on proper formation of race car letters, on bilateral and
hand/eye coordination.

(What will you focus on next session? Changes in cueing, adaptations, assistance, etc. What strategies to continue?
New strategies Discontinue strategies? Probe other behaviors/responses? Other testing needed? Contact family, other
professional, school?)

Next session we will focus on correct letter formation of race car letters using a counterclockwise
formation. We will also reintroduce the fireman letters. Hand/eye coordination, bilateral coordination, and
fine motor control will be the focus during these written activities as well as cutting and pasting activities.
A list of gross motor activities that mom can do at home with O to promote the proper formation of the
race car letters will be give to her as homework. I will encourage her to do at least a couple of the items on
the list before the next session.

7. Home Program: accurately described/documented. You

should ALWAYS have homework for families to complete. This
section includes what you told them during the session to do
at home to reinforce the skills you are practicing in the
session. It should also include what written information you
gave them. Homework and follow through is always more
likely to happen if you give them something they have to mark
down, complete or bring back. It gives family accountability.
ALSO at least 1x a month you should include some kind of
educational materials to the family. A list of activities to do to
promote a skill, resources, development education, etc.

Cooper made significant progress

from last week in his sensory
modulation/regulation and attention
span. He improved consistency w/
tripod grasp, but does required
modeling and verbal prompting for
pincer grasp. This is likely a
combination of attention span and
frustration. He is able to legibly write
all letters of his name except e and

how this is impacting goals

and functional skills.

r. Remains focused on writing the

letters until that point and then gives
up. Cooper made good progress (on
attending to table top activities
w/minimal verbal prompting, but the
addition of the seat wedge provided
him with additional input for activity
tolerance and attention. His father
reports dissatisfaction with Coopers
current school program. The family is
considering switching schools as
they are not seeing accommodations
and attention they were hoping for.
Discussed the importance of
proprioceptive input including the
use of a seat wedge or ball for
Coopers attention span during table
top activities. He reports that he will
bring this up to Coopers school.

10. Plan: concise statement

of what next session will focus
on - NOT restatement of
goals or Continue current
Plan This builds on
Assessment section what
skills are you going to focus
on in next session to promote
what skills?

Next session we will focus on fine

motor dexterity and accuracy to
promote letter formation, cutting,
and buttoning skills. Will continue to
work on handwriting goals through
gross motor and sensory motor
activities to facilitate continued
focus, body awareness, and
coordination to enhance strength
and activity endurance. Will also
continue to implement strategies to
ease transitioning from activity to
activity (specifically non-preferred
such as going home, handwriting,
etc.), as this is very important to
both parents. Will begin to practice
capital letter formation to improve
functional legibility and sizing.
Cooper responds well to repetition,
so we will test the HWT method of
Wet-Dry-Try with Frog Jump capitals
(E, D, P, B, R, N, M) over the course
of treatment. Will also begin to
implement functional sizing
strategies including sensory-based to
continue to help Cooper learn to
regulate and modulate input/output
