For children already in our practice, your child's OT can take care of your registration directly. 



September through July, Handwriting Club meets weekly for 6 weeks on Tuesdays afternoons for 50 minutes. The timing for Handwriting Club are wither 4:30-5:20pm or 5:00-5:50pm, depending on your child's age and the unique makeup of the small group. In August, we offer weeklong "Intensives" that are daily Monday through Friday. These are geared towards back-to-school readiness. 

Is my child the right age for HANDWRITING CLUB?

TK to rising 4th graders are welcome at Handwriting Club. That’s roughly ages 5 to 10 years old. We use Handwriting Without Tears®, a developmentally appropriate, multi-sensory curriculum for writing​. For children 8 years and older, writing technology accommodations may be integrated into Handwriting Club, if and when it is appropriate for writing success.


Handwriting Club takes place at our indoor/outdoor OT therapy studio located at 1137 S Point View Street in Los Angeles. Because we use both indoor and outdoor spaces, please dress for the weather, and plan to get messy. We strongly encourage wearing socks (for inside) and closed-toed shoes (for outside). Please send your child with a hat and sunscreen already applied


How many kids are in a HANDWRITING CLUB?

Groups are limited to ensure at least a 2:1 student-to-teacher ratio. That way your child receives individualized attention while reaping the benefits of an exciting group experience.


Can handwriting actually be fun?

Yes, it’s really fun! We use Handwriting Without Tears®, a developmentally appropriate and multi-sensory curriculum for writing instruction.


Does my child need to be in OT to benefit? 

No way! These groups are designed both for children with identified needs and those who are looking for a fun way to strengthen skills. Our clubs are thoughtfully designed to meet and celebrate our different strengths, interests, and abilities.



All groups are led by a pediatric occupational therapist along with a graduate-level occupational therapy student and a team of talented assistants. Together, we offer a creative, collaborative approach to writing instruction that combines extensive experience with Handwriting Without Tears®. This team approach to learning ensures individualized attention. 


Do you offer parent training to the grown-ups?

Yes, we do! Our "Fine Motor Fun and Function" workshop is offered via Zoom. It is open and free for parents, caregivers, and educators with a child who has participated in Handwriting Club.  We learn about fine motor development and skills for school success. The workshop includes strategies and plenty of fun games to play at home. 


How do you track progress during HANDWRITING CLUB?

Each child will be briefly assessed at the beginning and end of each Handwriting Club to track individual progress. At the end of the club, you will receive a detailed progress report that includes: 

  • Tailored recommendations to ensure carryover and success at school

  • Tools and games to build fine motor skills at home

  • Suggestions for next steps and follow-up, as needed

We are available to schedule a check-in meeting with your child's parents, caregivers, or educators (via Zoom or phone) to discuss your child's progress at any time. Please note that standard rates for OT apply to meetings like this in 15-minute increments because this is not included in the club fee.

Can I get a superbill for insurance?

We are not in-network for health insurance. For children who qualify, a superbill will be provided for you to submit to PPO insurance plans. Please reach out to your insurance to find out about reimbursement for OT. This group is billed under a group code (CPT 97150-GO), and an ICD-10 may be assigned when appropriate, based on your child's strengths and challenges. Superbills are issued monthly, after the session. When you register your child for the group, please let us know if you would like to receive a superbill.
