✏️O C C U P A T I O N A L • T H E R A P Y✏️ This week’s OT Therapy Hack is..... The ICY POLE STICK!! 🍭
This little wooden gem is a great little tool to help develop SPACING for children who struggle with their Handwriting📝! Handwriting is SUCH a complex skill one we all take for granted but one that has a motor✍🏼, visual 👀and cognitive 🧠component all of which need to sequence together simultaneously to produce the written word🖊!! Therefore when there is a breakdown in one or more of these components, handwriting can often seem impossible😩!! Therefore using what I like to call my “SPACE MAN” where by we decorate the icy pole stick and then use it to add space after the child has written a word🙌🏻✍🏼. So if you have a child that joins all the words together on a page or has BIG gaps between their words, doesn’t know where to start a word, starts in the middle of a page or misses words in their sentence when writing, it can often indicate that the child has difficulty with visual perception🤔. Therefore by placing your Space Man next to a word on your page it will help your child to slow their eye tracking down to plan and execute where the next letter needs to start and in turn will help to routinely improve their visual perception for spacing when writing🤗! This handy little invention can be purchased in a bag from supermarkets, reject shops and office works for under $5, which means if you lose or break your space man you can have MANY MANY spares😂👌🏼!! #occupationaltherapy#finemotorskills#handwriting#therapytipsandadvice#spacing#pencilgrasp#brightstarttherapy#improveyourself#schoolready#handwritinggoals

There are lots of rules and elements to take into consideration, and here’s a pretty important one: word and letter spacing. There are two main points of spacing we’ll run over: tracking and leading.
Leading is the adjustment of space between vertical lines of type. There are a lot of things that determine what leading you should use – from your choice of typeface, how much text you have to work with etc. But, a good rule of thumb is this: longer line lengths often require a bit more leading than shorter line lengths.
While kerning is often done manually, when you have a large body of text and a tight deadline, there often isn’t time to manually adjust each space, which is where tracking comes in handy. The tracking tool adjusts the space between characters and words in a more general way than kerning.

1 or 2 spaces after a period? Whatever you do divides you by age & typing ideology. There was a time when the standard was 2 spaces. Not anymore. In fact, it tends to look like a typo if you put 2 spaces after a period these days. And you’re showing your age if you do - that is, you’re old enough to have taken typing classes in high school. 😳
(And DYK that in HTML, no matter how many spaces you type, they get turned into one space.) #typography#2spacesnomore #1or2#spacing#agerevealed#typingclass
