Northwest Suburbs Skilled Handwriting Opportunity!
Testimonial: "My son has been attending Rainbow Tree day camps for the past 5 years. He benefits tremendously from the nature based activities and the outstanding professional staff. I feel blessed to have this amazing opportunity for my son so close to home."
Handwriting is a life skill!
Handwriting is required in all subject areas!
We recognize that parents are busy! We recognize that it is really hard to meet all of your child's learning needs. This is where we come in. We would be honored to be a part of your village of support for your child.
Your time is valuable! We know every minute of your day matters. It's not too often that professionals come to you! We have recognized this need! And now with the pandemic, we want to support families in their natural environment but still being consistent with our nature based focus! We love backyards!
We are Occupational Therapists with expert knowledge in brain and body development. We use creative ways, researched evidence and neuroscience to best support handwriting skills!! We also LOVE supporting children!
Rainbow Tree's handwriting experience is one of a kind. We utilize nature as the backdrop along with using natural materials to facilitate learning and then we spend focused time with our paper and pencil. For informal assessment and formal instruction, we utilize the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum. If your child is working on writing legibility we focus on strategies to support visual perception along with formation.

"Our son LOVES Rainbow Tree! He is beaming proud after each session when we talk about his accomplishments for the day. There is enough repetition to strengthen his skills, but no two days are the same. Lisa and team are the true definition compassion, kindness and support. Can't wait for another Rainbow Tree experience!"
How you can I get my child's spot secured?
**** It is recommended that you grab a spot soon as sessions will fill quickly!
#1 Complete this form to give us some information about your child to help us determine a good fit and to identify your location. This will also be a way to secure your spot early. All children are welcome between the ages of 4 and 10. We individualize your child's handwriting based on an informal assessment, viewing a handwriting sample provided by you and getting information from you the parent.
#2 You will be contacted once we confirm that your child is a good fit and that you are in the service area!! You can expect a response within 3 days once the form is complete!
#3 Payment for services made. LINK to make payment will be provided to you within the email confirmation! You will also be requested to complete an official registration form following purchase. Thank you!
#4 Services are scheduled with you. First come first serve for preferred times. Sessions are only during the weekday and during the day (sorry - no weekends or evenings). The setting is ideally in your backyard!! Yes, we come to you! Sweet deal right??!!!! You may be wondering if a friend can join too and the answer is yes. We can accommodate up to groups of 2 and maybe 3 depending of level of support required. There is no difference in fee but having friends can make it much more fun!! What happens if a rainy day? We work with you to determine if there is a sheltered space to use and make it work!
Unfortunately, we cannot refund for sessions missed or canceled on the same day. We can attempt to re-schedule sessions if given 3 days notice. However, we cannot guarantee makeup sessions because of tight scheduling.
All sessions are paid for up front. Available packages: 6, 8 or 10 week packages available. (we recommend at least 8 sessions)! Sessions are one hour in length and one time per week!
