FINE MOTOR SKILLS
Fine motor skills are important in many school activities as well as life skills. Weakness in fine motor skills can affect a child’s ability to color, write, eat, use a computer, turn pages in a book, use buttons/zippers when dressing, tie shoe laces, and take notes. Getting thoughts down on paper can be difficult for students with fine motor skills deficits. When test taking, it can be frustrating and anxiety provoking when they feel that they cannot complete the test in a timely manner.
Toys and sports that may enhance fine motor skills are:
- Card games (learning to shuffle)
- Activities that involve drawing, coloring, or cutting
We offer specifically designed skill instruction to strengthen fine motor skills.
