Your Very Own Children's Occupational Therapist
20 Years Experience, TES Award Nominated, MSc BSc OT (Hons) Occupational Therapist..It's Safe To Say I Can Help!
Hello, I’m Sheilagh.
I’m a children’s occupational therapist working in schools across the UK every week, and I know a LOT about handwriting.
I work with parents like you helping you teach your child handwriting and make them super confident writers.
I’ve been featured in or I have spoken at the TES Special Educational Needs Show, the Mums Show Live, OT News, the Good Schools Guide and the SEN Magazine.
Oh…and I’m a best-selling author of ‘The Early Handwriting Skills Toolkit’ which the National Handwriting Association said is a “fantastic book”. I think it’s safe to say I know my stuff.
Helping your child to learn to write can feel overwhelming and lonely but it doesn’t need to. I can help.
We’ll talk pencil grips and letter formations, letter and word spaces, writing fast and being exam ready to write – you’ll help your son or daughter be thinking and writing like a handwriting pro before you know it.

Real people. Real help. Real results!
This is a very useful early handwriting toolkit in line with NHA advice, as all suggested practice is rooted in relevant theory, research and evidence.
Sheilagh Blyth is a highly professional, well prepared, knowledgeable and clear presenter. Her day course on Handwriting was outstanding and teachers’ comments and evaluations were highly appreciative. We are already looking forward to her next course.
As a Paediatric Occupational Therapist recently transferring from the public sector into independent practice, I have lots to experience clinically but none whatsoever in setting up and managing a business. Sheilagh is consistently encouraging, understanding of my learning style, sends me great resources and helps me set realistic targets. I look forward to her sessions and am confident that this is helping me keep on track for the CPD requirement…
I feel I am better equipped to support children who have challenges with handwriting.
Sheilagh has made the whole process so easy right from the start. She is very professional and has always offered very timely and effective support from booking the training day to receiving online support through her website. All of our staff came out of the training day feeling enthusiastic and confident with the knowledge they had acquired during the day. There were lots of hands-on practical activities, and easy to…
I was at your talk at the TES SEN show and of all the seminars (and I went to eight) yours was the best in terms of content and presentation. Keep up the wonderful enthusiasm for such an important part of a child’s education that causes so much stress for many of our children.
Sheilagh’s work has impacted positively upon teachers, teaching assistants and children. Her work is deeply dependent upon her extensive knowledge and expertise as an Occupational Therapist. This realm of expertise is now available for general practitioners and has huge impact.
Sheilagh has the warmest and easiest of styles both for the parent and child. Ollie instantly felt at ease with Sheilagh and the handwriting assessment went very quickly for him as Sheilagh engaged him quickly and made it fun. Sheilagh quickly built a rapport with Ollie and we would recommend her in a flash!
Your ‘Handwriting Programme on Skype’ service has helped homework becoming much less of an issue for my daughter, as it was in the past. She has gained self confidence and enjoyment of writing rather than approaching it with dread and rather than just dismissing all her handwriting as ‘rubbish’ she is now able to note areas of neatness and skill which has built on her self esteem.
Hi Sheilagh, I just wanted to thank you for boosting Fraser’s confidence and writing when he was in year 3. Today he got his GCSE results and got a staggeringly amazing 10 A* with A**(9) in Maths and English. He was so anti school and struggling until your intervention when it all turned around for him. Thank you.
My child was struggling with handwriting, we worked through the The Early Handwriting Toolkit Book together at home while on a waiting list for OT. We found it a very easy to follow systematic approach which allowed us to identify what his issues are and gave us exercises and strategies to help us support him. I’ve shown it to his school and they too have bought their own copy.
