Welcome to the show notes for Episode 105 of the OT Schoolhouse Podcast.


As an OT practitioner in the schools, it doesn’t take long to realize that most of the evaluation referrals coming your way are due to handwriting concerns. As such, you have probably begun to fine-tune your ability to promote increased fine motor, visual motor, and manual dexterity skills.


But another way to address handwriting is through adapting the environment and using tools to support students’ ability to learn handwriting in a new way.

In this episode of the OT Schoolhouse Podcast, I want to introduce you to an adapted paper I developed over 5 years and still recommend to parents and teachers today. I also want to give it to you for free so that you can use and share it as well.


Have a listen to learn the following objectives:

  • Learn about common types of adapted paper used by School-Based OTPs

  • Learn why and how I decided to create Gray-Space Paper

  • Learn how to use Gray-Space Paper to support students with handwriting difficulties
