Collaborative Model to Improve Fine Motor Skills in Children

[Source: Your Therapy Source]

Do you provide push-in or collaborative treatment sessions as a school-based Occupational Therapist?  Many school-based therapists do provide related services in this manner to help improve carryover of services.  Occupational Therapist Ingrid C. King, MScOT, completed a research study on a collaborative model to improve fine motor skills in children.

The Aim of the Study on Collaborative Model to Improve Fine Motor Skills in Children

Young students’ fine motor skills are an important predictor of their future academic success. Yet it is uncertain whether teachers have the means to identify and address students’ fine motor needs. Occupational therapists working in schools have the knowledge and skills to train teachers, thereby improving outcomes for larger numbers of students. This is a suitable delivery method of services considering funding limitations and long waitlists for therapy.
