Fine Motor Skills: Developing Little Hands for Classroom Activities
This workshop will look at the role of occupational therapists (OT) at the elementary level and provide information on the developmental milestones of fine motor skills (e.g. pencil grasp, handwriting, drawing, cutting, etc.). We will discuss the common fine motor challenges that elementary students can face which may impact participation in daily classroom activities. We will also include tips and activity ideas to promote the development of these skills that can be done at home. We will suggest how to make printing and other fine motor activities more fun and engaging when working on this at home.
