Our son recieved OT though the school system when he was in primary school [he is now 13]. His goal was to tie his shoes. She worked with him weekly spending part of each session on shoe tying. He was tying his shoes by second grade, he ties them the same way most people do. If the child is receiving OT they can make this a goal, If the child is not receiving OT request an evaluation and state why you want OT services [examples: shoe tying, cutting with scissors, fine motor movements, engaging a zipper, proper way to hold utensils, checking the ergonomics of childs seating when using equipment [note takers, Braille writer], cutting food, etc,]

Yup; break it down into the "first knot" and then the bow.

    My daughter, Aubrie, now thriteen, and I were talking about this not 
too
long ago. It seems as if it was taking her forever as well. she said 
that
the thing that made the difference was taking a rope, which someone did 
with
her, and putting it around her theigh and sitting down and going through 
the
steps of tying it. She was between 7 and 8 when she learned. Good luck!
