tOol Time


What is tOol Time? tOol Time is returning this summer! This live, virtual program is hosted by the JMU-OTCES team! Children will tune in two times a week to engage in various activities that are led by OTCES occupational therapy practitioners and graduate students. Each virtual meeting will be focused around a specific theme and will include a combination of activities that promote physical activity, fine motor development, visual motor integration, self-regulation, and "thinking" skills. Additionally, there will be a reflective component designed to help each child identify "tools" (strategies) that can be added to their personal "tool box" (journal) and incorporated into their daily lives. What are some of our goals with tOol Time?

  • To develop an awareness of different strategies for coping, self-regulation, routines, emotional wellbeing, etc and explore those that are more favorable for each child.
  • To develop skills that can be organically integrated into and complement each family’s daily routines
