Hi, I'm Munira! 

I'm a Paediatric Occupational Therapist and I've been helping improve children's sensory processing and motor skills for writing for 22 years. 


Does your child resist or lack interest in writing so homework is a struggle?

Does your child say their hands are sore or hurt from writing? 

Do they avoid fine motor tasks like writing and crafting because it's too tricky for them? 

Are you on a waitlist or can't access Occupational Therapy but want to help your child now? 

Are you committed to doing a treatment program to improve your child's foundational sensory and motor skills for writing at home with my support? 


IF SO, YOU'RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE.


Handwriting difficulties often stem from underlying sensory processing and motor difficulties. 

Let's get to the bottom of this and figure out which skills are missing and then develop those skills with an actual treatment program that your child progresses through.

I will help you improve your child's strength, stamina, gross and fine motor coordination so they will be more comfortable and confident with skills for writing. 

Join me on this 5-week program to improve your child's sensory and motor skills for writing with a step-by-step roadmap of what to do.

Via video demonstrations and live support, I will help you learn which skills your child needs to develop their writing, AND guide you through a treatment program to build those skills whilst also boosting their confidence.


This is how your 5-week course works: 

  • First, you complete an initial questionnaire so I learn about your child's background and struggles


  • In the first week, I'll guide you how to make baseline observations so you know which skills your child needs help developing in the upcoming weeks.

  • For each of the following four weeks, you have video tutorials and weekly demonstrations of FUN treatment activities to address the 'skill of the week' leading to improved pencil control for writing


Week 1: Sensory Awareness

Week 2: Core Stability                                                                  

Week 3: Pressure Control

Week 4: Spatial Awareness

  • You have Weekly Live Interactive Q&A's for the first five weeks (recordings available) to discuss your concerns and receive expert support from myself. Can't make it? No worries. Send in your questions beforehand. 


  • You access a private FaceBook community for 10 weeks for support from myself and connection with other parents 


The 5-week program will run from 31st January to 9th March, 2021 and you have access to the course material for 10 weeks. 

By the end of this course, you will:

-understand your child's sensory processing and motor skills, and how it affects their fine motor skills and writing so you can better support and advocate for them 


-put into action tried-and-tested treatment activities with your child to develop the skills they actually need for writing


-know with certainty how to help your individual child versus second guessing yourself, searching Google or reading what others do for their child


-go from being confused and overwhelmed to hopeful  and confident how to help your child at home


-be less worried and have more peace of mind learning not only treatment activities but a framework you can apply to your child's daily life so they are happier and more confident

Yes, I'm in!

I'm ready to go from uncertain and overwhelmed to clear and confident how to help my child develop their skills for writing.

Is This Course Right For Me?

This course is for you if:

  • Your child is between 4-11 years old

  • Your child has sensory processing difficulties, ASD, DCD, dyslexia, Down's syndrome, or writing difficulties

  • Your child's hands are sore, they resist writing, or struggle with fine motor skills

  • Your child is on a waitlist, or gets minimal to no OT

  • You want to learn how to help your child at home and advocate for their needs

This course is NOT for you if:

  • Your child has a neurological diagnosis such as Cerebral Palsy or profound learning difficulties

  • Your child is non-ambulatory

  • You want 1:1 sessions

  • You want to practice writing versus work on foundational skills to write

  • You are unable to do the work with your own child

Investment

Learn from my 20+ years of experience. The course value is equivalent to ten 1:1 sessions (£1450) plus five parent consultations (£725). Enrolment ends on 29th Jan, '21.

FAQ'S

  • When does the course start?

    The course lasts four weeks. It starts on 22nd Nov, '20 and ends on 21st Dec, '20.

    The videos and activities will be available on a week-by-week basis. You will have access to the course material, the recorded Q&A's, and FB group till 31st January, '21.

  • How will a course relate to my individual child?

    I will ask you to complete an intake form for background information. I will not be reviewing your child’s reports for this group program. However I’m happy to do so via a private consultation.

  • Is an online course effective compared to 1:1 help?

    I've been an OT for 22+ years.  I have worked with a thousand or so kids and their parents.  This has given me insight to go back on and these kids have taught me so much that I can relate it to other kids. 

    Yes, all kids are different and unique, however, there are some pathways we follow based on neuroscience. 

    I have my feet in both a clinic and virtual space. This helps me keep my feet wet and my mind inspired. 

    All of this helps me 'get' your child.

  • What changes will I see in my child after this course?

    All kids progress differently and have their own strengths and needs.

    Although this course is aimed at improving fine motor skills, it will be via the foundational skills. As a result, you will notice progress in other areas too.

    After an intensive block of sessions with me, parents often will note:

    -Stronger, more confident and secure with their body
    – less clumsy, more coordinated
    -Increased strength & stamina
    -Improved posture, able to hold up their body
    -more active and coordinated on the playground
    -Do more resistive tasks with arms / hands
    -Better able to control objects in their hands, less fumbly
    -Increased pressure with hands, more relaxed with hands
    -More willing to play games or do activities that require fine motor coordination
    -More use of ‘utensils’ to play or cook
    -More willing to do pencil tasks, arts and crafts
    -Less frustration or resistance
    -More enjoyment with fine motor play, crafts, drawing / writing
    -More precise with their movements

  • Can this help my child who is 'demand avoidant?'

    In this course, you will learn more than just treatment activities.

    I teach you the framework.

    Once you know the 'formula,' you can implement it when it's the right time for your child as a natural part of their day. This is why parents are the best to work with their kids when it's right versus when having to head off for a session with somebody else.

  • Do I need special equipment to do the activities?

    The biggest thing you will need to do for this program is to stick with the content and trust the process.

    We are going to use what you have at home!

    I did home care in New York City for 10 years. Because many of us had tiny apartments there, I always joke that I know how to work in a shoebox! :)

    Some items we may use include:

    -trampoline, bounce pad, mattress or sofa cushions for jumping
    -beanbags, crashpads, pillows and blankets
    -masking tape
    -squirt bottles, soap pumps, spray bottles

  • How much time do I need to do this course?

    The demonstration videos will be presented in bite-sized chunks. There are also brief written summaries too. Each child is different and can tolerate different amounts of treatment.

    If I had to guess, you will need about 60-90 minutes with your child per week, spread over two to three sessions.

    You will need about 30-60 minutes to go through the course material each week.

  • What if I have any questions?

    Send in your questions via the Google Form before the weekly live Q&A's.

    You can also post questions and shares in the FB group for the community. I will pop into the FB group once daily on Mon to Fri.

  • Is there a guarantee?

    I am confident that the material in this course will help you improve your child's fine motor skills and writing via their foundational skills.

    As long as you fit the criteria above, show that you have done the work, and reached out for help in the private FB group and on the Live Q&A's, you will receive a refund.

    Let me know within 14-days of starting the program.

Munira Adenwalla

I help parents to develop their child’s sensory and motor skills for pencil control and writing. I am a strong proponent of early intervention. I have seen first hand with my own son and children I treat, how early intervention helps establish strong foundations for sensory processing, motor coordination, and emotional regulation.

I'm a strong believer in a parents’ gutt instinct and value working with you to directly support your child’s sensory and motor needs.

As you are with your child the most, I want to help you to understand your child's needs and know what to do to help them. Once you know this, you will be able to more effectively help your child develop the skills they need while parenting on-the-go.

I look forward to supporting you on this journey to increase your child's fine motor control and writing through fun and connection.
