Hi! My name is Erika Hartfield, and I am a COTA (certified occupational therapy assistant) with six-plus years of experience. I have experience in both a school and clinical setting working with children from birth-21 years of age. I discovered my love of helping children learn to write and the joy it brought the child when they succeeded! So I put my faith in action and turned my passion for teaching children and my love of the Lord into a career.
Handwriting is a vital life skill that I have noticed many students struggle with. Unfortunately, I noticed that schools are no longer teaching this skill correctly. I started Scribbling Hands to revive a vital life skill and help kids overcome writing difficulties. I desire to bridge the gap, not only with improving fine motor skills, but bringing the word of God back into homes and schools.
I am a Handwriting Without Tears® Level 1 Certified Handwriting Specialist. I have specialized skills and experience using their materials and teaching their curriculum with great results! I can’t wait to meet you and restore the joy of writing within your child!
Erika has a special gift for working with children. My son and I truly enjoyed partnering with her to get his writing up to par. She was patient, kind and professional throughout the process. She gives feedback so you never have to worry if the sessions are working. What I enjoyed the most was walking past my son's workstation and seeing him smile and hearing them laugh while working with Erika. Before the last session, he asked "Is this the last time we're going to see Ms. Erika?" If your child is facing challenges with their writing, call Erika.
