Fine Motor Skills
Fine motor coordination refers to the ability to use our arms, hands and fingers to reach, grasp, and manipulate small objects and use tools such as crayons, spoons, scissors and a hammer. Fine motor skills require a high degree of control and precision. Mastery of fine motor skills is necessary for play, self-care and most school activities such as turning pages in a book, building with blocks, fastening buttons and zippers, eating with a fork and knife, writing legibly, and using a computer.
At POTS, we keep it fun by playing with blocks, puzzles, chalk, or even a keyboard. We work on fine motor skills using the individual child’s needs as our guideline to increase their skill level.
