About Christine

My name is Christine Cridland. My students call me Ms. Christine or Mrs. Cridland. I am a licensed and registered occupational therapist for over twenty years and have always loved helping others.

My true love is helping children in their school setting. Children spend almost half of their school day engaged in writing activities! Even in this digital age, writing is very beneficial and it's still a necessary, life skill.

As a National Workshop Presenter for Handwriting Without Tears®, I have travelled the United States presenting over one hundred forty workshops in the last seven years. As a result, I have had the unique experience learning and sharing with teachers, administrators and parents about current handwriting strategies that lead to academic success. In addition, I can speak first hand about my tutoring experience with my students attending public and private schools in the northern Virginia area.
