Fine Motor 101: How fine motor skills develop & how to select effective activities
In this free instructional video I explain:
How children's motor skills develop, along with the ages and stages of when we expect to see important fine motor skills established in children ages 2 to 6 years
There are a multitude of gross & fine motor activities to chose from but why are some activities designed to improve fine motor skills more effective than others?
What does a good fine motor program look like and why?
Helpful reading material based on this video:
Fine motor milestones - How do my child's fine motor skills develop at different ages?
Fine motor foundations & the developmental biomechanical approach
- What additional factors impact on my child's ability to write and do other school related fine motor tasks?
Now days many children don't have enough outdoor play opportunities to develop their gross motor skills which can lead to fine motor delays. Fine motor readiness involves a lot more than putting Lego pieces together or swiping on an iPad.
Is your child physically ready for school? Use the fine motor skill & ability check to see.
How much do you know about fine motor skills and school readiness?
We instruct children out of what we know.
