I went to OT school at Tufts University and I have been an OT for 41 years. I work part time as an Early Intervention OT evaluator and I also work part time in an elementary school (K-5). I have worked mostly in peds during my career, mostly preschoolers (60%) and elementary school age (40%). I started in Physcial rehab (5 years) and then worked in Acute care 2 years) and since then have been working with children for the past 35 years. I see lots of issues with prewriting with preschoolers as well as with school aged children. I use Handwriitng without Tears, Size Matters as the two main approaches with helping students with prewriting and writing. I also use word graphing as a way to help student understand the 3 lines used in paper when aligning letters correctly.
