OT Corner: School-Related Fine Motor Skills – Understanding the Components
[Source: Your Therapy Source]
When you search the internet, scour social media and review your textbooks, there are thousands of fine motor activities available to improve children’s fine motor skills. It can become completely overwhelming just to decide what activity to choose to help a specific child. It is important to understand the components of school-related fine motor skills. Just because there is a multitude of fine motor activities available for improving children’s fine motor skills in general, it doesn’t mean one size fits all. Certain fine motor activities are more suited to developing essential skills for school tasks such as handwriting. Ingrid S. King, MScOT, BOT, has created the Fantastic Fingers® Fine Motor Program which includes songs, games and extension activities specifically selected to achieve this purpose.
