Suggestions for Improving Fine Motor Skills

  • You will find suggestions posted on our website that provide helpful hints to improve various fine motor skills addressed in therapy. 

    Remember that posture is very important.  A child should be positioned in a chair so that his/her back is against the chair and feet are flat on the floor.  The child's arms should be placed comfortably on the desk/table.  If the child's shoulders are up in the air or elbows are far out, the desk is too high.  If the child has to lean over to complete his/her work, the desk is too low.
