Bilateral Coordination Activities

Does your child struggle with bilateral coordination activities such as threading beads and cutting with scissors? Is it hard for your child to jump and hop, to catch a ball or to clap in time to music? Has your child been diagnosed with poor bilateral integration?

If so, the activities presented in this easy-to-use downloadable OT Mom e-book may help your child at home, using readily available resources.

This e-book can be used to supplement whatever occupational therapy intervention your child may be receiving, but please be sure to check with your child’s occupational therapist first, before commencing with any activities.

How Were These Specific Activities Chosen?

My OT work with children, first in private pediatric practice, then at low-income schools where resources are limited, has inspired the activities in this e-book.

As a mother of 3, one of whom had some coordination delays, I understand first hand the financial restraints that parents face, as well as their desire to give their child the best possible start in life.

With this in mind, I have chosen activities that are easily replicated in the home and use inexpensive everyday resources. As with all the activities on my website, real-life photos accompany the instructions.

"I am currently supporting children in first grade who have special needs. I am not a qualified teacher and have found OT Mom’s help invaluable. The Bilateral Coordination Activities e-book is well laid out and easy to understand. There are lots of simple, easy and fun activities to do with great photos to help with the instructions!"

Why Is This E-Book Not Free?

If you have stumbled upon this page by accident, you may be wondering why OT Mom's E-books are not free! The fact is, I cannot afford to maintain a website of this calibre without a source of income.

I invite you to explore my bilateral coordination activities page on my website if you need free information or a sample of the kind of activities I offer. If you need more than these free resources, then feel free to contact me to explain your situation.
