Pediatric Occupational Therapist, Pediatric feeding therapist, Trained in Infant Craniosacral Therapy
Thara Shenoy completed her Bachelors of Occupational Therapy from Manipal University in 2009. After graduating, she worked in for 2 years, dealing with special children with Autism, Downs syndrome, C.P, ADD, Developmental delays, and related issues. She worked in a special school for more than 8 years dealing with these special kids. She has helped 10000+ children and parents to get through a better developmental journey! Thara has been running the ‘Writing without tears’ program for 4 years and has served 10,000+ parents.
Writing without tears is a 6-day program to help parents to address early age writing. With this course, we aim to make children fall in love with writing. This course will touch upon all the foundational skills that aid in writing, activities to encourage these foundational skills, the importance of pre-writing skills. It also gives an insight into when is your child ready to right, the ideal grasp, and its development.
This is not a WhatsApp-based course or Live session. Instead, we have designed the weekly “micro-learn” format that fits naturally into your parent’s work-life.
Once you enroll, you will download the Totto Parents App where you can access the course in our “micro-learn” format. From the starting date, you will be able to view the videos, one day at a time. You will receive notifications for each day’s video and other learning tasks/activities that accompany them.
In the micro-learn format, content is delivered in short focused bites. Five to eight minutes. One bite at a time for a limited number of days.
This format also allows you to watch/listen to it at your convenience – without disturbing your daily workflow! And you will have practical solutions or activities to do and experience each day that can ultimately solve the problem you’re facing.
How much do you remember from the last time you took a session? Maybe 5% of the whole session?
The most important aspect of the micro-learn format is this – it is scientifically proven to increase retention by up to 75%. In contrast, after attending a 2-hour webinar, you would have forgotten 75% of the information by the end of a week, even if you have taken notes!
Naturally, at the end of the week, you will have access to all the videos. And you can watch it together or return to any day’s video as many times as you want. This might be better than watching a 2 or 3-hour-long recording for reference later.
The 5-minutes-a-day are time you will need to set aside each day to get all the information. We have taken extra care to design the program in a crisp and easy way to accommodate the content into very short videos.
This will also include ideas and tips for practical activities you may try while spending time with your child. It works out well if you are a parent who is able to spend at least 15 minutes of uninterrupted time with your child every day.
You will have lifetime access to the course on the Totto Parent’s App. As long as you’re on the app, you can return to any day’s video as many times as you want.
Even more valuable is that you can use the discussion form (the comments section) to ask your doubts and get clarifications from the Totto Parent Mentor or course facilitator – even months after you’ve completed the course.
Free printable, cheat sheets, etc depending on the accompanying activities. For example, a worksheet printable for writing practice.
Free one-to-one mentor connects – to discuss specific parenting issues.
Course-specific give-aways – like a book, or bonus videos.
