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 to develop these skills, 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.
If you are looking for free resources, click on the Coordination Skills button and follow the links for free bilateral activities.
NOTE: The e-book is in PDF format, which makes it easy to read on your PC or tablet, or to print out as you wish! You need to have Adobe Reader or equivalent.
Your Bonus Activity Planner will help you to plan how to use the suggested activities to meet your child’s needs. It will guide you in setting goals for your child and in drawing up a program specifically for your child’s needs.
It is impossible for me to tell each parent where to start, as children have different interests and have been exposed to different levels of stimulation in their lives! But with your Bonus Activity Planner, you will be able to plan and implement activities that will best help your child.
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.
For the price of a couple of cheap coffees, you can have access to a wealth of bilateral coordination activities that will benefit your child.
Pay with your credit card through PayPal OR with your PayPal account.

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.
None of the OT Mom E-Books serve as a substitute for an occupational therapy evaluation and treatment. Please read my E-Book Disclaimer for further details.
