Pooler Pediatric Dentistry dentists pediatric Savannah

Did you know that your child’s first dental visit should be by age one?

The office at Pooler Pediatric Dentistry  is specially designed with children in mind with video games and ceiling-mounted TVs and a friendly staff who enjoy working with younger patients! They even offer sedation for those children that are too young or nervous to otherwise complete treatment.

Let Pooler Pediatric Dentistry show your child how fun a trip to the dentist can be!

Dr. Carla G. Stappenbeck is a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist with degrees from Harvard University and the University of Maryland and a certificate from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. She is excited to be serving Chatham and the surrounding counties.

As a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist, she has voluntarily undergone vigorous written and oral exams, which demonstrate specialized knowledge and skill. In order to maintain her certification, she must complete yearly continuing education requirements to stay up-to-date with developments in both technology and patient care.

Dr. Carla is fluent in both English and Spanish (Se Habla Español).

Savannah occupational therapist: Improving a child’s messy handwriting may require therapy

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Physical Occupational Therapy Rehabilitation Savannah Pooler Handwriting Help

By Megan Valdivieso, an occupational therapist with The Rehabilitation Institute at Memorial University Medical Center. She sees pediatric patients in the Savannah and Pooler offices.

You may think your child’s messy handwriting will naturally improve with time and practice. But producing legible, neat handwriting often requires skilled intervention with an occupational therapist.

Handwriting is impacted by several hand skills, including hand strength and endurance, fine motor coordination, and pencil grasp. Your child’s core strength and postural stability can also play a role.

Eye-hand coordination, visual memory and visual perceptual skills also can affect handwriting. Without refined visual skills, your child will have difficulty copying off the board, recalling a visual image from memory or writing on lined paper.

Occupational therapists often take a multisensory approach to helping children improve their handwriting. This reinforces learning and allows the child’s nervous system to integrate information efficiently. They may use scented markers, shaving cream and chalk to motivate a child who struggles with traditional paper and pencil activities.

If your child’s handwriting is a problem, talk to your pediatrician about a referral to an occupational therapist. Addressing the problem early improves your child’s chances of achieving successful handwriting skills.
